◆ gather()

std::unique_ptr<table> cudf::gather ( table_view const &  source_table,
column_view const &  gather_map,
out_of_bounds_policy  bounds_policy = out_of_bounds_policy::DONT_CHECK,
rmm::mr::device_memory_resource mr = rmm::mr::get_current_device_resource() 

Gathers the specified rows (including null values) of a set of columns.

Gathers the rows of the source columns according to gather_map such that row "i" in the resulting table's columns will contain row "gather_map[i]" from the source columns. The number of rows in the result table will be equal to the number of elements in gather_map.

A negative value i in the gather_map is interpreted as i+n, where n is the number of rows in the source_table.

For dictionary columns, the keys column component is copied and not trimmed if the gather results in abandoned key elements.

cudf::logic_errorif gather_map contains null values.
[in]source_tableThe input columns whose rows will be gathered
[in]gather_mapView into a non-nullable column of integral indices that maps the rows in the source columns to rows in the destination columns.
[in]bounds_policyPolicy to apply to account for possible out-of-bounds indices DONT_CHECK skips all bounds checking for gather map values. NULLIFY coerces rows that corresponds to out-of-bounds indices in the gather map to be null elements. Callers should use DONT_CHECK when they are certain that the gather_map contains only valid indices for better performance. If policy is set to DONT_CHECK and there are out-of-bounds indices in the gather map, the behavior is undefined. Defaults to DONT_CHECK.
