KeyCollisionFunction

KeyCollisionFunction

is an option for JoinAcross that specifies how to handle pairs of elements that are not being joined but nevertheless have the same key.

Details

  • Possible settings for KeyCollisionFunction include:
  • Nonedrop both elements
    Leftinclude only the left element (default)
    Rightinclude only the right element
    funcapply func to generate a pair of new keys

Examples

Basic Examples  (4)

When a matching key b is not used for joining, the left value for this key is used by default:

Use KeyCollisionFunction to specify which value of the colliding key should be returned:

Generate new keys instead of a colliding key:

Omit colliding keys:

Specify which values to take for colliding keys:

Specifically pick the right values for colliding keys:
