Not sure exactly what you are after:

unlist might accomplish the second task.

Whether c(apply(df, 1, I)) would be satisfactory for the first task  
might depend on whether the columns in the dataframe were all of the  
same type. Now that I think of it, both soolutions would force the  
types to be that same.


df[1:nrow(df), ]   ...  would essentially give you the first request,  
but it would not be any different than just typing df. So .... what do  
intend this process to accomplish?
