[Stable]

Function to quick encode vector or columns to a specific format.

Usage

as_numeric(.data, ..., .keep = "all", .pull = FALSE)

as_integer(.data, ..., .keep = "all", .pull = FALSE)

as_logical(.data, ..., .keep = "all", .pull = FALSE)

as_character(.data, ..., .keep = "all", .pull = FALSE)

as_factor(.data, ..., .keep = "all", .pull = FALSE)

Arguments

.data

A data frame or a vector.

...

<tidy-select>. If .data is a data frame, then ... are the variable(s) to encode to a format.

.keep

Allows you to control which columns from .data are retained in the output.

  • "all" (default) retains all variables.

  • "used" keeps any variables used to make new variables.

.pull

Allows you to pull out the last column of the output. It is useful in combination with .keep = "used". In this case, a vector will be created with the used column.

Value

An object of the same class of .data with the variables in ... encoded to the specified format.
