Proposed patch for ?Extract

R devel mailing list
Hi,

In follow up to the thread on R-Help yesterday:

  https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2019-February/461725.html

I am attaching a proposed patch against the trunk version of Extract.Rd, with wording added to the "Matrices and arrays" section, to note that indexing these object by factors behaves in a manner consistent with vectors.

Regards,

Marc Schwartz

Seems reasonable to me: some redundancy is allowed even in the
reference manuals (:= union of all help pages).
{good useRs knowning that 'matrix' and 'arrays' are atomic
 vectors, too .. as was mentioned.}
