RAttributes

RAttributes[atts]
an RLink container for attributes of R objects.

DetailsDetails

  • atts must be a sequence of zero, one, or more delayed rules, of the form name :> value, where name must be a string name of an attribute, and value can be any valid R object representation, which RLink can handle.
  • is not normally used as a standalone expression, but rather as a part of expressions with heads RVector or RList.
  • For R vectors, the attribute dim is not included in in the short form of R object representation, but is included in the long (full) form.

This represents the full internal form of a matrix:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

This is equivalent to the following short form:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

The following expression represents the full internal form of an R vector with an additional names attribute:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=

This is equivalent to the following short form:

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

You can send this vector to R:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=

This returns the attributes of the vector used above, fetched from R:

In[4]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[4]=

Looking at the internal form of this answer, you can see that in R, attributes are stored in a list:

In[5]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[5]=
