# Saving instructional results in R as a matrix or object

In the package CoinMinD I ran the GM function on the following code:

``````GM(c(2,4,5,1),0.05)
``````

The results are as follows:

``````Original Intervals
Lower Limit
[1] 0.03470190 0.10880765 0.15542939 0.01035233
Upper Limit
[1] 0.5266663 0.6718765 0.7349127 0.4413580
Adjusted Intervals
Lower Limit
[1] 0.03470190 0.10880765 0.15542939 0.01035233
Upper Limit
[1] 0.5266663 0.6718765 0.7349127 0.4413580
Volume
[1] 0.06918613
``````

I am trying to create a matrix where the first two lines Lower Limit and the Upper Limit, appear as follows:

``````     [,1]      [,2]
[1,]    0.03470190 0.5266663
[2,]    0.10880765 0.6718765
[3,]    0.15542939 0.7349127
[4,]    0.01035233 0.4413580
``````

Unforunately, when I save the code to an object:

``````c<-GM(c(2,4,5,1),0.05)
``````

and run

``````c[1]
``````

or

``````GM(c(2,4,5,1),0.05) [1]
``````

I only get the last line of the results:

``````> c[1]
[1] 0.06918613
``````

Interesting question! Luckily the function `GM` is not a long one so we can look inside:

``````function (inpmat, alpha)
{
## ... those lines for computing results are left out...
cat("Original Intervals\n")
cat("Lower Limit\n")
print(GM.LL)
cat("Upper Limit\n")
print(GM.UL)
cat("Adjusted Intervals\n")
cat("Lower Limit\n")
print(LLA)
cat("Upper Limit\n")
print(ULA)
cat("Volume\n")
print(VOL)
}
``````

All values you want to extract are only printed rather than exported. We can easily modify this function to export them.

``````myGM <- function (inpmat, alpha)
{
k = length(inpmat)
s = sum(inpmat)
chi = qchisq(1 - (alpha/k), df = 1)
pi = inpmat/s
GM.UL = (chi + 2 * inpmat + sqrt(chi * chi + 4 * inpmat *
chi * (1 - pi)))/(2 * (chi + s))
GM.LL = (chi + 2 * inpmat - sqrt(chi * chi + 4 * inpmat *
chi * (1 - pi)))/(2 * (chi + s))
LLA = 0
ULA = 0
for (r in 1:length(inpmat)) {
if (GM.LL[r] < 0)
LLA[r] = 0
else LLA[r] = GM.LL[r]
if (GM.UL[r] > 1)
ULA[r] = 1
else ULA[r] = GM.UL[r]
}
diA = ULA - LLA
VOL = round(prod(diA), 8)
## the lines for printing are removed
## replace it with the line below
list(limit = matrix(c(GM.LL, GM.UL, LLA, ULA), ncol = 4L,
dimnames = list(NULL, c("ori_low", "ori_up", "adj_low", "adj_up"))),
volume = VOL)
}

## test
myGM(c(2,4,5,1),0.05)

#\$limit
#        ori_low    ori_up    adj_low    adj_up
#[1,] 0.03470190 0.5266663 0.03470190 0.5266663
#[2,] 0.10880765 0.6718765 0.10880765 0.6718765
#[3,] 0.15542939 0.7349127 0.15542939 0.7349127
#[4,] 0.01035233 0.4413580 0.01035233 0.4413580
#
#\$volume
#[1] 0.06918613
``````

You can easily extract the column you want from `\$limit`.
