change_cellstatus() allows to change|modify the anonymization state
of single table cells for objects of class sdcProblem.
change_cellstatus(object, specs, rule, verbose = FALSE, ...)
an object of class sdcProblem
input that defines which cells to query; the function expects either (see examples below)
a named character vector: with names referring to the names of the dimensional variables and the values to its labels. In this case each vector-element must contain a single value (label)
data.frame where the column-names refer to the names of the dimensional
variables and the values to the labels
scalar character vector specifying a valid anonymization code ('u', 'z', 'x', 's') to which all the desired cells under consideration should be set.
scalar logical value defining verbosity, defaults to
additional parameters for potential future use, currently unused.
