Examples


## Not run: 
  fst::write_fst(iris,"iris_test.fst")
  # parse the file but not reading it
  parse_fst("iris_test.fst") -> ft
  ft

  class(ft)
  lapply(ft,class)
  names(ft)
  dim(ft)
  summary_fst(ft)

  # get the data by query
  ft %>% slice_fst(1:3)
  ft %>% slice_fst(c(1,3))

  ft %>% select_fst(Sepal.Length)
  ft %>% select_fst(Sepal.Length,Sepal.Width)
  ft %>% select_fst("Sepal.Length")
  ft %>% select_fst(1:3)
  ft %>% select_fst(1,3)
  ft %>% select_fst("Se")
  ft %>% select_fst("nothing")
  ft %>% select_fst("Se|Sp")
  ft %>% select_fst(cols = names(iris)[2:3])

  ft %>% filter_fst(Sepal.Width > 3)
  ft %>% filter_fst(Sepal.Length > 6 , Species == "virginica")
  ft %>% filter_fst(Sepal.Length > 6 & Species == "virginica" & Sepal.Width < 3)

  unlink("iris_test.fst")
