Selects and extracts a LiPD "variable list"
selectData( L, var.name = NA, paleo.or.chron = "paleoData", paleo.or.chron.num = NA, table.type = "measurement", meas.table.num = NA, always.choose = FALSE, alt.names = NA, model.num = 1, ens.table.num = 1, sum.table.num = 1, strict.search = FALSE )
A LiPD object - an R serialization of a single LiPD file. It's a list, and is typically created by `readLipd()`
string name of the variable to extract
"paleoData" or "chronData"
an integer that corresponds to paleo.num or chron Data object (L$<paleo.or.chron>[[?]]) has the variable you want?
What type of table do you want to select data from? ("measurement", "summary" or "ensemble")
an integer that corresponds to paleo.num measurementTable has the variable you want?
Force selection of the variable from a list
A vector of strings for alternative names to search for
an integer that corresponds to model.num that has the variable you want
an integer that corresponds to ensembleTable you want to get the variable from?
an integer that corresponds to which summaryTable you want to get the variable from?
Use a strict.search to look for the ageEnsemble and depth variables. TRUE(default) or FALSE.
