all.equal() and which()

 Please excuse the lack of a complete dataset here, if its needed I'll be happy to provide it. Can anyone show me how to rewrite this? Browse[1]> time(data)[24210:24220] [1] 24.209 24.210 24.211 24.212 24.213 24.214 24.215 24.216 24.217 [10] 24.218 24.219 Browse[1]> which(time(data)==24.211) numeric(0) I'm assuming its an eps fault but which(all.equal(time(data),24.211)) dosnt seem to work ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide! http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html
