Re: [R] unique columns in a matrix and number of each

One way is to 'paste' together the values in a column and then use 'table' to count them.

'duplicated' can probably do the same thing with the MARGIN option to find the duplicated one. You still them have to find the original ones.

For example, let's say I have a matrix with 6 columns, 2 of these are filled with the value of 1 and the other 4 are filled with the value of 0. I would then like to have a command that tells me what the unique columns are (so columns with 1s and columns with 0s) and the number of each type of column (so 2 columns of 1s and 4 columns of 0s) that occur in the matrix.
