This is a CPOConstructor to be used to create a CPO. It is called like any R function and returns the created CPO.

Select columns by type or name. The parameters “type” and “pattern” are additive; if both are given, all column that match either will be returned.

cpoSelectFreeProperties behaves just as cpoSelect, with the additional function that it is treated like a CPO that removes all data properties from the data. This disables the internal property check and can be useful when trying to compose CPOs that do not have compatible properties.

cpoSelect(type = character(0), index = integer(0),
  names = character(0), pattern = NULL, pattern.ignore.case = FALSE,
  pattern.perl = FALSE, pattern.fixed = FALSE, invert = FALSE, id,
  export = "export.default", affect.type = NULL,
  affect.index = integer(0), affect.names = character(0),
  affect.pattern = NULL, affect.invert = FALSE,
  affect.pattern.ignore.case = FALSE, affect.pattern.perl = FALSE,
  affect.pattern.fixed = FALSE)

cpoSelectFreeProperties(type = character(0), index = integer(0),
  names = character(0), pattern = NULL, pattern.ignore.case = FALSE,
  pattern.perl = FALSE, pattern.fixed = FALSE, invert = FALSE, id,
  export = "export.default", affect.type = NULL,
  affect.index = integer(0), affect.names = character(0),
  affect.pattern = NULL, affect.invert = FALSE,
  affect.pattern.ignore.case = FALSE, affect.pattern.perl = FALSE,
  affect.pattern.fixed = FALSE)

Arguments

type

[character]
One or more out of “numeric”, “ordered”, “factor”, “other”. The type of columns to keep. Default is character(0).

index

[integer]
Indices of columns to keep. Note that the index counts columns without the target column(s). This and the next parameter make it possible to re-order columns. While all columns which match either “type”, “pattern” or “index” remain in the resulting data, the ones selected by “index” are put at the front in the order specified. Default is integer(0).

names

[character]
Names of columns to keep. Matching columns will be kept in order of their names occurring, but after the columns indicated in “index”.

pattern

[character(1)]
A pattern to match against the column names. Same as in grep. Default is NULL for no matching.

pattern.ignore.case

[logical(1)]
Influences behaviour of “pattern”: Whether to perform case insensitive matching. Same as in grep. Default is FALSE.

pattern.perl

[logical(1)]
Influences behaviour of “pattern”: Should Perl-compatible regexps be used? Same as in grep. Default is FALSE.

pattern.fixed

[logical(1)]
Influences behaviour of “pattern”: Whether to use match pattern as as is. Same as in grep. Default is FALSE.

invert

[logical(1)]
Invert column selection: Drop the named columns and return the rest, instead of keeping the selected columns only. Default is FALSE.

id

[character(1)]
id to use as prefix for the CPO's hyperparameters. this must be used to avoid name clashes when composing two CPOs of the same type, or with learners or other CPOS with hyperparameters with clashing names.

export

[character]
Either a character vector indicating the parameters to export as hyperparameters, or one of the special values “export.all” (export all parameters), “export.default” (export all parameters that are exported by default), “export.set” (export all parameters that were set during construction), “export.default.set” (export the intersection of the “default” and “set” parameters), “export.unset” (export all parameters that were not set during construction) or “export.default.unset” (export the intersection of the “default” and “unset” parameters). Default is “export.default”.

affect.type

[character | NULL]
Type of columns to affect. A subset of “numeric”, “factor”, “ordered”, “other”, or NULL to not match by column type. Default is NULL.

affect.index

[numeric]
Indices of feature columns to affect. The order of indices given is respected. Target column indices are not counted (since target columns are always included). Default is integer(0).

affect.names

[character]
Feature names of feature columns to affect. The order of names given is respected. Default is character(0).

affect.pattern

[character(1) | NULL]
grep pattern to match feature names by. Default is NULL (no pattern matching)

affect.invert

[logical(1)]
Whether to affect all features not matched by other affect.* parameters.

affect.pattern.ignore.case

[logical(1)]
Ignore case when matching features with affect.pattern; see grep. Default is FALSE.

affect.pattern.perl

[logical(1)]
Use Perl-style regular expressions for affect.pattern; see grep. Default is FALSE.

affect.pattern.fixed

[logical(1)]
Use fixed matching instead of regular expressions for affect.pattern; see grep. Default is FALSE.

Value

[CPO].

General CPO info

This function creates a CPO object, which can be applied to Tasks, data.frames, link{Learner}s and other CPO objects using the %>>% operator.

The parameters of this object can be changed after creation using the function setHyperPars. The other hyper-parameter manipulating functins, getHyperPars and getParamSet similarly work as one expects.

If the “id” parameter is given, the hyperparameters will have this id as aprefix; this will, however, not change the parameters of the creator function.

Calling a CPOConstructor

CPO constructor functions are called with optional values of parameters, and additional “special” optional values. The special optional values are the id parameter, and the affect.* parameters. The affect.* parameters enable the user to control which subset of a given dataset is affected. If no affect.* parameters are given, all data features are affected by default.
