# R Programming: Convert a given matrix to a list of column-vectors

## R Programming: Matrix Exercise-10 with Solution

Write a R program to convert a given matrix to a list of column-vectors.

**Sample Solution:**

**R Programming Code:**

```
x = matrix(1:12, ncol=3)
print("Original matrix:")
print(x)
print("list from the said matrix:")
l = split(x, rep(1:ncol(x), each = nrow(x)))
print(l)
```

Sample Output:

[1] "Original matrix:" [,1] [,2] [,3] [1,] 1 5 9 [2,] 2 6 10 [3,] 3 7 11 [4,] 4 8 12 [1] "list from the said matrix:" $`1` [1] 1 2 3 4 $`2` [1] 5 6 7 8 $`3` [1] 9 10 11 12
