This chapter describes the Aster R functions available for working with tables, including transferring data between Aster virtual data frames and R data frames, and reviewing and manipulating data. These functions allow users to use R-style functions to examine and manipulate data stored in an Aster Database.
Aster R uses the concept of virtual object. These objects represent data stored in the Aster Database, and can be manipulated from the R command line using Aster R functions. Virtual objects can be converted to regular R objects and vice versa.
For details about functions, refer to the Aster R Function Reference or to the inline help.
