R - Integer

Card Puncher Data Processing


The integer class


Numeric format is the default number system. If you explicitly want an integer, you need to specify it with the L suffix.


When using the combine function, integer must be also specified with the suffix L

> v=c(1L,3L,-5L)
> str(v)
 int [1:3] 1 3 -5
> v <- c(1L)
> class(v)
[1] "integer"


With the sequence operator

> v=5:10
> str(v)
 int [1:6] 5 6 7 8 9 10
