prune an object by removing points near (or far) from a target object

prune(x, target, ...)

# S3 method for neuron
prune(x, target, ...)

# S3 method for dotprops
prune(x, target, ...)

# S3 method for neuronlist
prune(x, target, ...)

# S3 method for default
prune(x, target, maxdist, keep = c("near", "far"), return.indices = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

The object to prune. (e.g. dotprops object, see details)

target

Another object with 3D points that will determine which points in x are kept.

...

Additional arguments for methods (eventually passed to prune.default)

maxdist

The threshold distance for keeping points

keep

Whether to keep points in x that are near or far from the target

return.indices

Whether to return the indices that pass the test rather than the 3D object/points (default FALSE)

Details

prune.neuron depends on a more basic function prune_vertices and is also related to subset.neuron.
