    That looks like it could be useful to Window's users if they haven't already found a clean way to upgrade and want to save some time during the upgrade process.

    This probably isn't the best place to put this but I just stumbled upon it and I liked it so I thought I would shared. If you want to post data so people can reproduce what you're doing the dput function is pretty useful! Example:
    Code: 
    
    > a <- rnorm(20)
    > dput(a)
    c(0.199682671697792, 0.221405916576581, -0.540108061480237, -1.03454796714979, 
    0.855130785017209, -0.728297453334319, -0.124853295148411, 0.573593976345655, 
    0.587471048161332, -0.399657000174106, 0.0790025338361471, -1.15666859744187,

    Re: Info for R users (Links, Manuals, Books, etc.)

    I had a crazy idea about how to explain R to new users without scaring them about advanced statistics. Basically, I try to teach them to use it like a calculator. If know absolute newbies, it might be helpful for them, too.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Best-Fre...lator-Software
    (seriously, I don't say advanced statistical software anywhere)

    Also, a more straight-forward link about R for people who have heard of it, but don't know what it is.
    http://hubpages.com/hub/What-is-R-for-statistics

    Hope it helps! Yay, R!

    I have quite a bit to say on your posts. I don't really have the time to say all of it right now. I'll either come back and edit this or post later but suffice it to say that I don't quite agree with a lot of what you wrote.

    Thats pretty useful, do you know about the page function?

    Code: 
    # use it like this
     a <- rnorm(20)
     page(a)
    
    # or with a function
    page(optim)
    This is especially useful when working in a terminal only environment (or webserver, supercomputer ect).

    Re: Info for R users (Links, Manuals, Books, etc.)

    I haven't tried it out yet but it came highly recommended to me:
    RStudio - an R IDE available on all platforms.

    I haven't seen Tart around in a while but I was thinking it might be a good idea to compile all the suggestions in the first post so people don't have to dig through a couple of pages to possibly see if there's something that meets what they're looking for. So I guess what I'm saying is...

    Tart - if you're around and just lurking would you be alright with either me editing your first post or possibly you editing it?

    Other mods / active users - If Tart doesn't respond what do you think of the idea?

    Rstudio really is fantastic and it has some built in sweave elements including a compile PDF button straight from R.

    Nice idea. I dont think Tart will object if you keep his original post intact, so update it below his post.

    Note: Post space is limited though so you could summarize each subsequent post, and then cite the poster with a link.

    e.g post this:

    ASCII text representation of an R object; easy way to recreate objects Dason #38

    That should maximize space use efficiency!

    If all the mods keep updating the summary after your initial work it should turn out incredibly useful. We can even split the posts (e.g. you 2-22, me 23-44), if you think it will take too much of your time to summarize everything.

    A very useful resource for those of us who are extending R with C ( those who aren't should read this or this) is the GNU scientific library. It has just opened a huge box of tricks for me over the past weeks, so I thought I might share.
