I am having trouble with the rather easy problem of merging a few string vectors into one, seperating the entries with a comma. The problem can be boiled down to this:
Fruit<-c("Banana", "Apple", "Banana", "Orange", "Appel") Origin<-c("New Guinea", "China","Germany", "USA", "Germany") Quality<-c("Good", "Bad", "Good", "Very bad", "Decent") Price<-c(1,2,1,3,2) Fruits<-data.frame(Fruit, Origin, Quality, Price)
how to get one dataframe, whose first coloumn's (let's call the coloumn xyz) first entry for example looks like this:
Banana, New Guinea, Good
while the second coloumn contains the price?
I have found this thread
, which contains the operation I need, and tried every method listed there, however I could not even reproduce the problem of the link, namely writing the string in C behind the strings in A and B. R always nags about something different, or does not even recognize entries at all. I have been replacing the dataframe data in the example with in this case Fruits and the coloumns A,B,C with the respective names of the coloumns of this example. For the first coloumn for example, I have tried Fruit, "Fruit" and Fruits$
Fruit, nothing works. What am I doing wrong?
