Description

CaliperMatrix class

CaliperMatrix class

Details

This class makes it easier to interact with Caliper matrices in R.

See vignette("caliper-matrices") for more details on interacting with matrices. This includes info on S3 methods for bringing them into R formats like data.frames and as.matrix.

Public fields

handle

This is a COM pointer and represents the object in Caliper software.

cores

This is a named list of cores. Each element contains a MatrixCurrency-class.

indices

This lists the row and column indices available for the matrix.

Active bindings

row_index

This can be used to retrieve or set the current row index.

column_index

This can be used to retrieve or set the current column index.
