Try to transform an R object to a format supported by the posterior package.

as_draws(x, ...)

is_draws(x)

Arguments

x

(draws) A draws object or another R object for which the method is defined.

...

Arguments passed to individual methods (if applicable).

Value

If possible, a draws object in the closest supported format to x. The formats are linked to in the See Also section below.

Details

The class "draws" is the parent class of all supported formats, which also have their own subclasses of the form "draws_{format}" (e.g. "draws_array").
