Get the number of documents or features in an object.

ndoc(x)

nfeat(x)

## Arguments

x a quanteda object: a corpus, dfm, or tokens object, or a readtext object from the readtext package.

## Value

an integer (count) of the number of documents or features

## Details

ndoc returns the number of documents in an object whose texts are organized as "documents" (a corpus, dfm, or tokens object, a readtext object from the readtext package).

nfeat returns the number of features from a dfm; it is an alias for ntype when applied to dfm objects. This function is only defined for dfm objects because only these have "features". (To count tokens, see ntoken.)
