How to extract all string values from a vector in R with maximum lengths?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

If we have a string vector then all the values in the vector are not likely to be of same size and we might be looking for smaller size or bigger size values. Therefore, if we want to extract all string values from a vector in R with maximum lengths even if there are duplicates can be done by using the max and nchar function as shown in the below examples.

x1<-sample(c("india","russia","egypt","canada"),100,replace=TRUE)
x1

Output

[1]  "egypt" "canada" "india" "russia" "canada" "russia" "canada" "russia"
[9]  "egypt" "russia" "egypt" "canada" "india" "canada" "russia" "egypt"
