Re: [R] Extracting single output data into a vector or matrix

Ayman,

It is difficult to say without seeing some code, but your output seems to be not a list in the R sense but a collection of vectors, each of length 1. The best way to put the values into a vector probably is to assign them to the elements of the vector during your computations.

Cleary, this is because each of the outputs in the list represents an individual data point that is not regarded as part of a matrix. Any help? I desperately need to be able to extract all the output data into a Vector so I can perform the final step of my computation.
