NAME

Data::Frame::Indexer - Function interface for indexer

VERSION

version 0.0053

DESCRIPTION

A basic feature needed in a data frame library is the ability of subsetting a data frame by either numeric indices or string labels of columns and rows. Because of the ambiguity of number and string in Perl, there needs a way to allow user to explicitly specify whether their indexer is by numeric indices or string labels. This modules provides functions that serves this purpose.

FUNCTIONS

indexer_s

    indexer_s($x)

Returns either undef or an indexer object, by trying below rules,

indexer_i

    indexer_i($x)

Similar to indexer_s but would fallback to an indexer object of Data::Frame::Indexer::Integer.
