Give the TRUE
indices of a logical object, allowing for array
indices.
1 2 
x 
a 
arr.ind 
logical; should array indices be returned
when 
ind 
integervalued index vector, as resulting from

.dim 

.dimnames 
optional list of character 
useNames 
logical indicating if the value of 
If arr.ind == FALSE
(the default), an integer vector with
length
equal to sum(x)
, i.e., to the number of
TRUE
s in x
; Basically, the result is
(1:length(x))[x]
.
If arr.ind == TRUE
and x
is an array
(has
a dim
attribute), the result is
arrayInd(which(x), dim(x), dimnames(x))
, namely a matrix
whose rows each are the indices of one element of x
; see
Examples below.
Unlike most other base R functions this does not coerce x
to logical: only arguments with typeof
logical are
accepted and others give an error.
Werner Stahel and Peter Holzer (ETH Zurich) proposed the
arr.ind
option.
Logic
, which.min
for the index of
the minimum or maximum, and match
for the first index of
an element in a vector, i.e., for a scalar a
, match(a, x)
is equivalent to min(which(x == a))
but much more efficient.
