Intro

We are currently looking at reworking the list of functions to make them easier to use, and to find which ones you would find useful. If there is interest, we could add tags to functions so that you only load functions with certain tags like "beginners", "aggregate only" etc. To register interest in this, please email datashield@newcastle.ac.uk .

Deprecated functions

These functions in the left hand column shouldn't be used, as a rule. There is information contained within the help for each of them detailing which function you should use instead, that does all of what the deprecated function did do, and more!

Deprecated functionReplacement function

ds.subset

ds.dataFrameSubset

ds.subsetByClass

ds.dataFrameSubset

ds.table1D

ds.table

ds.table2D

ds.table

Generating the list of available functions yourself

See: /wiki/spaces/DSDEV/pages/12943456 for a list of all package manuals (pdf format) containing a list of all functions in our current DataSHIELD release.

Once you have loaded the DataSHIELD packages, you can find a list of all functions within a DataSHIELD package using the ls command in R/RStudio.

>ls("package:name")

The output below is for the dsBaseClient but can be substituted for any DataSHIELD package:
