This function is a low-level helper that powers many of the labelling functions. You should generally not need to call it directly unless you are creating your own labelling function.

number(
  x,
  accuracy = NULL,
  scale = 1,
  prefix = "",
  suffix = "",
  big.mark = " ",
  decimal.mark = ".",
  trim = TRUE,
  ...
)

Arguments

x

A numeric vector to format.

accuracy

A number to round to. Use (e.g.) 0.01 to show 2 decimal places of precision. If NULL, the default, uses a heuristic that should ensure breaks have the minimum number of digits needed to show the difference between adjacent values.

Applied to rescaled data.

scale

A scaling factor: x will be multiplied by scale before formatting. This is useful if the underlying data is very small or very large.

prefix

Symbols to display before and after value.

suffix

Symbols to display before and after value.

big.mark

Character used between every 3 digits to separate thousands.

decimal.mark

The character to be used to indicate the numeric decimal point.

trim

Logical, if FALSE, values are right-justified to a common width (see base::format()).

...

Other arguments passed on to base::format().

Value

A character vector of length(x).
