The prm class is required for ParameterSet objects, it allows specifying a parameter as a named set and optionally setting values and tags.

prm(id, support, value = NULL, tags = NULL, .check = TRUE)

Arguments

id

(character(1))
Parameter identifier.

support

([set6::Set]|character(1))
Either a set object from set6 or a character representing the set if it is already present in the support_dictionary. If a set6::Set is provided then the set and its string representation are added automatically to support_dictionary in order to provide fast internal checks. Common sets (such as the reals, naturals, etc.) are already provided in support_dictionary.

value

ANY
Optional to assign the parameter, will internally be checked that it lies within the given support.

tags

(character())
An optional character vector of tags to apply to the parameter. On their own tags offer little extra benefit, however they can be assigned properties when creating ParameterSet objects that enable them to be more powerful.

.check

For internal use only.

Examples

library(set6) # Constructing a prm with a Set support prm( id = "a", support = Reals$new(), value = 1 )
#> $id #> [1] "a" #> #> $support #> [1] "ℝ" #> #> $value #> [1] 1 #> #> $tags #> NULL #> #> attr(,"class") #> [1] "prm"
# Constructing a prm with a support already in the dictionary prm( id = "a", support = "reals", value = 1 )
#> $id #> [1] "a" #> #> $support #> [1] "reals" #> #> $value #> [1] 1 #> #> $tags #> NULL #> #> attr(,"class") #> [1] "prm"
# Adding tags prm( id = "a", support = "reals", value = 1, tags = c("tag1", "tag2") )
#> $id #> [1] "a" #> #> $support #> [1] "reals" #> #> $value #> [1] 1 #> #> $tags #> [1] "tag1" "tag2" #> #> attr(,"class") #> [1] "prm"
