wl: Retrieves or sets the wavelengths of a 'Spectra*' object.

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Either retrieves the wavelengths from a Spectra* object, or creates a Spectra* object from a "data.frame" object by setting some of its columns as the wavelengths.

When applied to a Spectra* object, this functions simply returns the wavelengths of the spectra it is storing.

If applied on a "data.frame" object, it is an helper function to create a Spectra* object. It then needs to be indicated the wavelengths at which the spectra values are measured. The assumption is that each row of the "data.frame" is a spectra, and the column names of the "data.frame" contain the wavelengths values.

If all the columns are used to create the Spectra* object, a Spectra object is created. If some attributes are left, they will be used to generate a SpectraDataFrame object.

## S4 method for signature 'Spectra'
wl(object)

## S4 replacement method for signature 'data.frame'
wl(object) <- value

## S4 replacement method for signature 'Spectra'
wl(object) <- value

Arguments

object

a "data.frame" or an object inheriting from class Spectra

value

the wavelengths of the Spectra* object to create

Value

If applied on a "data.frame", either a Spectra or a SpectraDataFrame object. If applied on a Spectra* object, a vector.
