Na(x)] n <- length (x) constant * if (( low || high ) && n%%2 == 0) { if ( low && high ) stop ("'low ' and 'high ' cannot be both TRUE ") n2 <- n%/%2 + as. integer ( high ) sort ( abs (x - center ), partial = n2)[n2] } else median ( abs (x - center )) } < environment : namespace :stats > 43 Chapter 5 ■ Functional Programming Functions usually have names, but we can also use anonymous, or unnamed functions. We might use an anonymous function when there’s no advantage to giving the function a name.

Time. By default, it will perform 100 replications of the expression being tested, which should be sufficient for our purposes of comparing the speed of the two functions. The difference in elapsed times is impressive, with the colSums function producing almost a fivefold improvement. Sometimes a significant speed improvement is as simple as using a newer function designed for speed. 1 0 NA NA The sapply function applies a function to the elements in a list but returns the results in a vector, matrix, or a list.

Here’s a little trick to make up some data quickly. I used the rep() function (for replicate) to generate 15 “observations” of the color of the vehicle. First, I created a character vector with three color names, then I replicated the vector five times to fabricate my new variable. By defining it as mpgMan$colors, I was able to create it and add it to the data frame at the same time. 4 Manipulating Data Structures Depending on the required data analysis, we sometimes need to restructure data by changing narrow format data to wide-format data, and vice versa.
