set() function

Warning! This page documents an earlier version of Flux, which is no longer actively developed. Flux v0.65 is the most recent stable version of Flux.

The set() function assigns a static value to each record in the input table. The key may modify an existing column or add a new column to the tables. If the modified column is part of the group key, the output tables are regrouped as needed.
