My questions are meant to be not necessarily specific...I am looking for
advice and best practices for setting up an R environment. Here's my
I am one of perhaps three or four individuals who will be analyzing the
same data through the use of R. I would like to set up a "base"
environment for our project, basically some scripts that connect to a
database, load several database tables into matrices in R, strip the
columns out of those matrices and do some minor tabluation...for
channel <- odbcConnect(yada, yada, yada)
surveyresults <- (channel, select * from sometable)
multiresults <- (channel, select * from othertable)
multiresults.columnname <- multiresults[,1] # or column 2 or 3 or 4 or
multiresults.columname.table <- table(multiresults.columnname)
I would like to create a single file that I could share that would load
this environment up for a new R user for this dataset. If any of you
wouldn't mind taking the time explaining how you would go about doing
something like this, I would appreciate it.
Also, does anyone know if one can set VI keybindings in an R shell?
