Hi,
Try:
within(ab, {c <- ifelse(b>0, a/b,0)})

Dear R users,
I am a R beginner and I am having trouble in using "If Else" in R. Here is
an example:
## create a data frame
a<-c(1,2,3,4)
b<-c(2,0,5,0)
ab<-data.frame(cbind(a,b))
##calculate c, which is the ratio between a and b
if(ab$b>0) {
ab$c<-ab$a/ab$b
} else {
ab$c<-0
}
here is the error I got:
Warning message:
In if (ab$b > 0) { :
the condition has length > 1 and only the first element will be used.
Any help is appreciated!
