latex.table {quantreg} R Documentation

## Writes a latex formatted table to a file

### Description

Automatically generates a latex formatted table from the matrix x Controls rounding, alignment, etc, etc

### Usage

latex.table(x, file=as.character(substitute(x)), rowlabel=file, rowlabel.just="l", cgroup, n.cgroup, rgroup, n.rgroup=NULL, digits, dec, rdec, cdec, append=FALSE, dcolumn=FALSE, cdot=FALSE, longtable=FALSE, table.env=TRUE, lines.page=40, caption, caption.lot, label=file, double.slash=FALSE,...)


### Arguments

 x A matrix x with dimnames file Name of output file (.tex will be added) rowlabel If x' has row dimnames, rowlabel is a character string containing the column heading for the row dimnames. The default is the name of the argument for x. rowlabel.just If x' has row dimnames, specifies the justification for printing them. Possible values are  "l", "r", "c"'. The heading (rowlabel') itself is left justified if rowlabel.just="l"', otherwise it is centered. cgroup a vector of character strings defining major column headings. The default is to have none. n.cgroup a vector containing the number of columns for which each element in cgroup is a heading. For example, specify cgroup= c("Major 1","Major 2")', n.cgroup=c(3,3)' if "Major 1" is to span columns 1-3 and "Major 2" is to span columns 4-6. rowlabel' does not count in the column numbers. You can omit n.cgroup' if all groups have the same number of columns. rgroup a vector of character strings containing headings for row groups. n.rgroup' must be present when rgroup' is given. The first n.rgroup[1]' rows are sectioned off and rgroup[1]' is used as a bold heading for them. The usual row dimnames (which must be present if rgroup' is) are indented. The next n.rgroup[2]' rows are treated likewise, etc. n.rgroup integer vector giving the number of rows in each grouping. If rgroup' is not specified, n.rgroup' is just used to divide off blocks of rows by horizontal lines. If rgroup' is given but n.rgroup' is omitted, n.rgroup' will default so that each row group contains the same number of rows. digits causes all values in the table to be formatted to digits' significant digits. dec' is usually preferred. dec If dec' is a scalar, all elements of the matrix will be rounded to dec' decimal places to the right of the decimal. dec' can also be a matrix whose elements correspond to x', for customized rounding of each element. rdec a vector specifying the number of decimal places to the right for each row (cdec' is more commonly used than rdec') cdec a vector specifying the number of decimal places for each column append defaults to F'. Set to T' to append output to an existing file. dcolumn Set to T' to use David Carlisles dcolumn' style for decimal alignment. Default is F', which aligns columns of numbers by changing leading blanks to "~", the LaTeX space-holder. You will probably want to use dcolumn' if you use rdec', as a column may then contain varying number of places to the right of the decimal. dcolumn' can line up all such numbers on the decimal point, with integer values right- justified at the decimal point location of numbers that actually contain decimal places. cdot Set to T' to use centered dots rather than ordinary periods in numbers. longtable Set to T' to use David Carlisles LaTeX longtable' style, allowing long tables to be split over multiple pages with headers repeated on each page. table.env Set table.env=FALSE' to suppress enclosing the table in a LaTeX table' environment. table.env' only applies when longtable=FALSE'. You may not specify a caption' if table.env=FALSE'. lines.page Applies if longtable=TRUE'. No more than lines.page' lines in the body of a table will be placed on a single page. Page breaks will only occur at rgroup' boundaries. caption a text string to use as a caption to print at the top of the first page of the table. Default is no caption. caption.lot a text string representing a short caption to be used in the "List of Tables". By default, LaTeX will use caption'. label a text string representing a symbolic label for the table for referencing with the LaTex \ref{label}' command. The default is file'. label' is only used if caption' is given. double.slash set to T' to output \' as \\' in LaTeX commands. Useful when you are reading the output file back into an S vector for later output. ... other optional arguments
