These functions are equivalent to in_case(), switch_case(), grep_case(), fn_case(), and fn_switch_case() but return factors with their levels determined by the order of their case statements.

in_case_fct(..., preserve = FALSE, default = NA, ordered = FALSE)

switch_case_fct(x, ..., preserve = FALSE, default = NA, ordered = FALSE)

grep_case_fct(x, ..., preserve = FALSE, default = NA, ordered = FALSE)

fn_case_fct(x, fn, ..., preserve = FALSE, default = NA, ordered = FALSE)

fn_switch_case_fct(x, fn, ..., preserve = FALSE, default = NA, ordered = FALSE)

## Arguments

... <dynamic-dots> A sequence of two-sided formulas or named arguments. Formulas: Elements of x that return TRUE when passed to fn with the left hand side (LHS) of each formula will be replaced with the value in the right hand side (RHS). The LHS must evaluate to a logical vector when passed to fn with x. The RHS must be of length 1 or the same length as all other RHS. Named arguments: named arguments are passed as additional arguments to the function fn. If TRUE, unmatched elements of x will be returned unmodified. (The elements may have their type coerced to be compatible with replacement values.) If FALSE, unmatched elements of x will be replaced with default. Defaults to FALSE. If preserve is FALSE, a value to replace unmatched elements of x. Defaults to NA. A logical. If TRUE, returns an ordered factor. If FALSE, returns an unordered factor. A vector A function to apply to the left-hand side of each formula in ... Either a quoted or unquoted function name, an anonymous function, or a purrr-style formula. The function should take two inputs, the first being x and the second being the left-hand side of the formula. The function should return a logical vector, either of length 1 or the same length as x.

## Value

A factor vector of length 1 or n, matching the length of the logical input or output vectors. Levels are determined by the order of inputs to .... Inconsistent lengths will generate an error.
