Dear HelpeRs,

i have a data.frame df as follows:


df <- data.frame(id=rep(1:3,rep(10,3)),

		x=rnorm(30), y=runif(30))

Now, I would like to rearrange the data and it works - regarding the variables/columns I would like to obtain:


df2<-reshape(df, timevar="emoqu", idvar="id", direction="wide")

My problem is, that

> df

    id emoqu           x          y
1   1     0  0.84078379 0.13701977
2   1     0  1.12215014 0.49143070


is reshaped to

> df2

    id x.0 y.0 ..
1 1 0.8407838 0.1370198 ..

(1) How can I influence which of the values is chosen? In my example, I would like to obtain the min/max instead of just the first value which appears in df and meets the criteria (id=1, emoqu=0).

(2) Can you imagine a routine which decides which function to use dependent on another variable (e.g. id: odd - min; even - max).
