## S4 method for signature 'SampleSetup'
head(x, k = 6, n = 6, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'SimControl'
head(x)

## S4 method for signature 'SimResults'
head(x, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'VirtualContControl'
head(x)

## S4 method for signature 'VirtualDataControl'
head(x)

## S4 method for signature 'VirtualNAControl'
head(x)

## S4 method for signature 'VirtualSampleControl'
head(x)

Arguments

x

an object.

k

the number of set up samples to be kept in the resulting object.

n

the number of indices to be kept in each of the set up samples in the resulting object.

...

additional arguments to be passed down to methods.

Value

An object of the same class as x, but in general smaller. See the “Methods” section below for details.

Methods

signature(x = "SampleSetup")

returns the first parts of set up samples. The first n indices of each of the first k set up samples are kept.

signature(x = "SimControl")

currently returns the object itself.

signature(x = "SimResults")

returns the first parts of simulation results. The method of head for the data frame in slot values is thereby called.

signature(x = "VirtualContControl")

currently returns the object itself.

signature(x = "VirtualDataControl")

currently returns the object itself.

signature(x = "VirtualNAControl")

currently returns the object itself.

signature(x = "VirtualSampleControl")

currently returns the object itself.
