R Question

View entire data frame when wrapped in tbl_df?

tibble
(previously
tbl_df
) is a version of a data frame created by the
dplyr
data frame manipulation package in R. It prevents long table outputs when accidentally calling the data frame.

Once a data frame has been wrapped by
tibble
/
tbl_df
, is there a command to view the whole data frame though (all the rows and columns of the data frame)?

If I use
df[1:100,]
, I will see all 100 rows, but if I use
df[1:101,]
, it will only display the first 10 rows. I would like to easily display all the rows to quickly scroll through them.

Is there either a dplyr command to counteract this or a way to unwrap the data frame?

Thanks,

Tim Tim
Answer

You could also use

print(tbl_df(df), n=40)

or with the help of the pipe operator

df %>% tbl_df %>% print(n=40)
