Hi, all,
Last week I described a possible bug with "...":
R> myfun <- function(x, ...) {x[...] <- 0; x}
R> x <- matrix(1:12, 3,4)
R> myfun(x)
Error in myfun(x) : SubAssignArgs: invalid number of arguments
I had a solution:
R> myfun <- function(x, ...) {if (missing(...)) x[]<-0 else x[...]<-0; x}
Here is another, probably related, problem:
R> myfun2 <- function(x, ...) myfun(x, ...)
R> myfun2(x, ,1:2)
Error in myfun(x, ...) : Argument is missing, with no default
Any ideas how to fix this up? I could, of course, explicitly pass all args:
R> myfun2(x, 1:dim(x)[1], 1:2)
[,1] [,2] [,3] [,4]
[1,] 0 0 7 10
[2,] 0 0 8 11
[3,] 0 0 9 12
Thanks!
