在特定数据集上调用`write.table`时会导致R崩溃




crash (2)

以下一直崩溃我的R会话。
在两台机器上测试,Ubuntu和Mac OS X在两者上都有类似的结果。

简要描述;简介:
使用所有NA的因子列在write.table上调用write.table

原始的数据集是相当大的,我已经设法隔离有问题的列,然后创建一个类似的向量,名为PROBLEM_DATA下面,导致相同的崩溃。

有趣的是,有时R崩溃,其他情况只会引发以下错误:

Error in write.table(x, file, nrow(x), p, rnames, sep, eol, na, dec, as.integer(quote),  : 
  'getCharCE' must be called on a CHARSXP

有关崩溃的原因的任何想法,或者应该提交作为一个错误?

违规数据和通话:

PROBLEM_DATA <- structure(114:116, .Label = c("String1", "String2", "String3", "String4", "String5", "String6", 
                   "String7", "String8", "String9", "String10", "String11", "String12", "String13", "String14", "String15"), class = "factor")

# This will cause a crash
write.table(PROBLEM_DATA, file=path.expand("~/test.csv"))

# This will also crash
write.table(PROBLEM_DATA, file=path.expand("~/test.csv"), fileEncoding="UTF-8")

不是一个答案,而是一个长长的评论:

PROBLEM_DATA <- structure(c(1:5,114:116), .Label = c("String1", "String2", "String3",'string4','str5','str6','str7'),class='factor')

Warning message:

Rgames> levels(PROBLEM_DATA)

Rgames> write.table(PROBLEM_DATA, file=path.expand("~/ctest.csv"))
Error in write.table(x, file, nrow(x), p, rnames, sep, eol, na, dec, as.integer(quote),  :

ctest.csv包含:(就Excel而言,每一行都是单个单元格)

x
1 "String1"
2 "String2"
3 "String3"
4 "string4"
5 "str5"
6

所以当关卡编号有一个“缺口”的时候,你可以看到一些坏事。 希望这可以给一个比我更多地理解因素的人提供线索。


这是一个不错的可重现的错误,应该报告给R-devel或者使用bug.report() 。 FWIW上

> sessionInfo()
R version 3.0.0 Patched (2013-04-03 r62485)
Platform: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu (64-bit)

如果在Linux上,我可以用CFLAGS =“ - g -O0”来配置R

R -d gdb
(gdb) break Rf_error
(gdb) run

然后粘贴你的线上面,并最终在

> write.table(PROBLEM_DATA, file=path.expand("~/test.csv"))

Breakpoint 1, Rf_error (format=0x7ffff7a8f0f0 "'%s' must be called on a CHARSXP") at /home/mtmorgan/src/R-3-0-branch/src/main/errors.c:753

[13] "String13" "String14" "String15"
(gdb) p indx
$1 = 113

这表明R试图打印出因子名称的第114个元素 - 显然事情已经出错了,因为该因子具有超出其级别的整数值。
