A GatingHierarchy


a character/numeric the name or full(/partial) gating path or node indices of the node / population.


other arguments passed to gs_get_pop_paths methods


logical whether to include the hidden children nodes.


gs_pop_get_parent returns a character vector, the name of the parent population. gs_pop_get_children returns a character or numeric vector of the node names or node indices of the child nodes of the current node. An empty vector if the node has no children.
