Transpose data frame

It is very easy to flip/transpose a data frame in R.

i.e. from

1 2 3 4 5
a b c d e

to

1 a
2 b
3 c
4 d
5 e

However, row names need to be set first. For example

rownames(example.frame) <- c('row1', 'row2', 'row3', 'row4')

Flipping is done by t(data.frame)

fliped.example.frame<-data.frame(t(example.frame))
