I have an S4 object named 'res' which I got while using an R package called RDAVIDWebService. I can't seem to find a way to convert this object into a dataframe in R.

I tried using the function 'as.data.frame(res)' but it throws this error:

> as.data.frame(res)
Error in as.data.frame.default(res) : 
cannot coerce class ‘structure("DAVIDFunctionalAnnotationTable", package = "RDAVIDWebService")’ to a data.frame

The structure of the object looks like this:

> str(res)
Formal class 'DAVIDFunctionalAnnotationTable' [package "RDAVIDWebService"] with 4 slots
[email protected] Genes     :'data.frame':    3011 obs. of  3 variables:

Also, is there a generalized way of converting any S4 object into a dataframe without caring about the data inside the object? This is important because the S4 objects I'm fetching with this R package could have varying number of lists/variables/characters inside each of the 4 slots(i.e. @Genes, @Dictionary, @Membership and @type).
