  upper = FALSE,
  diag = FALSE,
  sort = TRUE
)

Arguments

.data

A data.frame.

.group

Column name of counting group.

.value

Item to count pairs, will end up in V1 and V2 columns.

upper

When FALSE(Default), duplicated combinations would be removed.

diag

Whether to include diagonal (V1==V2) in output. Default uses FALSE.

sort

Value

A data.table with 3 columns (named as "V1","V2" and "n"), containing combinations in "V1" and "V2", and counts in "n".
