I'm wondering how to use the
subset(myData, THECOLUMN == someValue)
This is precisely why
subset is a bad tool for anything other than interactive use:
d <- data.frame(x = letters[1:5],y = runif(5)) > d[d[,'x'] == 'c',] x y 3 c 0.3080524
Fundamentally, extracting things in R is built around
[. Use it.
