I am trying to get a random matrix based on an original matrix called
disperser.mx, with dimensions 30x73
When I write the following code:
>scramble = sample (disperser.mx)
>newmat = matrix(scramble, nrow=30)
I get the following warning message and a very weird matrix with 30 rows but
only 3 columns shown below:
Warning message:
data length [73] is not a sub-multiple or multiple of the number of rows
[30] in matrix in: matrix(scramble, nrow = 30)
[,1] [,2] [,3]
[1,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[2,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[3,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[4,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[5,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[6,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[7,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[8,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
[9,] Integer,30 Integer,30 Integer,30
...
Can anyone please help me figure out why I get such a weird result?
