That would explain the difference in results. Regardless, the method I
suggested should work.
x1=c(rep(0:1,6))
x2=c(rep(1,12))
x3=c(rep(1,6),rep(0,6))
df=data.frame(x1,x2,x3)
tabledf=as.data.frame(with(df, table(x1,x2,x3)))
tabledf <- cbind(tabledf, res=1:nrow(tabledf))
newdf <- merge(df, tabledf)
Note that row order is not preserved; if you need that you can
add an id column to df before merging and sort on it after.
Please notice also that I've been copying the R-help list on my
replies, so that other people who either have similar questions or
might be moved to help can see what we've been discussing.
