Hello

I'm a new in R
I have a large data.frame "s" (this is actualy just a table in mysql) :

> names(s)

[1] "symbols", "day", "value"

I need to convert it to simple matrix. I have define this matrix like this:

> data.matrix <- matrix(nrow=nDays, ncol=nSymbols, dimnames=list(days,
symbols))

then i just copy values to the matrix using for() loop, but it seems to take very long time. Is is a more fast way to do it in R? I know, what i can just gyve s$value as source data to the matrix, but problem is, what for some symbols couple days could be just missed.

Cheers,
Dima
