    Pierre Legendre, co author of Numerical Ecology has a whole bunch of R functions on his site that may interest some of you. There is also a brief history of the development of the vegan package.

    Not sure actually. If you know French, there is an interview link on his home page that might reveal his secrets (I dont know French, so someone could tell me).

    TE, that link is pretty cool and I found it pretty useful.

    one thing though -

    The author suggests that using

    attach()

    is a bad idea. I have always used it, I just wonder why it would be considered a bad idea?

    @Bugman It could cause you to write over information and not realize it. It also muddies up your workspace. Generally I've seen it done in books for ease of explanation bit in reality people tend to use an explicit data argument or the with function. I don't know how much it matters though if it works for your workflow.

    yeah, I've seen lots of suggestions to not use attach, e.g. google's R style guide: https://google-styleguide.googlecode...unk/Rguide.xml

    In cases where you are working with a single simple dataset (SPSS like), and you don't want to add columns or convert values in the data, there is no reason not to use it. Once things get more complicated than this.. don't.

    But who am I? I'm not the great Tyler Rinker.
