Description

Functions for reading/loading and writing Pajek files:

loadnetwork - Loads a Pajek ".net" filename as a matrix. For now, only simple one and two-mode networks are supported (eg. only single relations, no time information).

loadnetwork2 - The same as above, but adapted to be called within loadpajek.

loadnetwork3 - Another version for reading networks.

loadnetwork4 - Another version for reading networks.

savenetwork - Saves a matrix into a Pajek ".net" filename.

loadmatrix - Loads a Pajek ".mat" filename as a matrix.

savematrix - Saves a matrix into a Pajek ".mat" filename.

loadvector - Loads a Pajek ".clu" filename as a vector.

loadvector2 - The same as above, but adapted to be called within loadpajek - as a consequence not suited for reading clusters.

savevector - Saves a vector into a Pajek ".clu" filename.

loadpajek - Loads a Pajek project file name (".paj") as a list with the following components: Networks, Partitions, Vectors and Clusters. Clusters and hierarchies are dismissed.

loadpajek(filename)

Arguments

filename

The name of the filename to be loaded or saved to or an open file object.

useSparseMatrix

Should a sparse matrix be use instead of the ordinary one? Sparse matrices can only be used if package Matrix is installed. The default NULL uses sparse matrices for networks with more that minN vertices.

minN

The minimal number of units in the network to use sparse matrices.

n

A matrix representing the network.

twomode

1 for one-mode networks and 2 for two-mode networks. Default sets the argument to 1 for square matrices and to 2 for others.

symetric

If TRUE, only the lower part of the matrix is used and the values are interpreted as "Edges", not "Arcs".

v

A vector.

fill

If TRUE, then in case the rows have unequal length, blank fields are added.

safe

If FALSE error will occur if not all vertices have labels. If TRUE reading works faster.

closeFile

Should the connection be closed at the end. Should be always TRUE if function is used directly.

Value

NULL, a matrix or a vector (see Description).
