Convert to data.frame, without factors

Share:

Description

Shortcut for: tmp_rownames = 1:nrow(x); as.data.frame(x, row.names=tmp_rownames, stringsAsFactors=FALSE)

Usage

1
  adf2(x)

Arguments

x

matrix or other object transformable to data.frame

Details

This function, and adf2, are useful for dealing with errors due to automatic conversion of some columns to factors. Another solution may be to prepend options(stringsAsFactors = FALSE) at the start of one's script, to turn off all default stringsAsFactors silliness.

In adf2, rownames are forced to be numbers; this can prevent errors due to e.g. repeated rownames after an rbind operation.

Value

data.frame
