Basic mathematical operations

As discussed in my previous post, basic arithmetic operations can be performed on individual columns.

# Subtraction

-0.5967498723478988

You’ll have to use the “.” operator for element-wise division.

Basic operations

Rearranging columns

r” is a regex search string. Here, any column with a string “work” will be selected and moved to the first place. You can write the full column name as well.

## Method to rearrange columns in a dataframe
select!(df_1, r"work", :)

Adding a new column in a dataframe

Here we add another column, “c”, to the dataframe df_2.

df_2.c = rand(10)
