[R] Fwd: Quadratic programming, for loop

       sos::findFn('{quadratic programming}') just identified 156 help 
pages in 68 packages containing the term "quadratic programming".  The 
function mentioned by Berwin Turlach, "solve.QP", is in package 
"quadprog", which has not been updated since 2016-12-20.  I've used 
qudprod successfully, but you might wish to consider some of the other 
options in package(s) more actively maintained.

       The "print" method for sos::findFn('{quadratic programming}') 
produced two sheets in my default browser.  The first of these contained 
156 rows for the 156 help pages in 68 packages, sorted by default by 
c('Count', 'MaxScore', 'TotalScore', 'Package', 'Score', 'Function').  
The second sheet listed only the 68 packages sorted by c('Count', 
'MaxScore', 'TotalScore', 'Package').  You can click on the column 
headers to get them sorted in different orders, if you want.

       "sos::findFn" is for me the fastest literature search for 
anything statistical.  I often write the list of help pages and the 
package summary to an Excel file using the "writeFindFn2xls" function, 
then annotate the package summary with other information to help me 
decide which package(s) and function(s) to try.

       Hope this helps.
