data.table is an enhanced data.frame with fast subset, fast
grouping and fast merge. It uses a short and flexible syntax
which extends existing R concepts.

where DT is a data.table with 4 columns (a,b,c,d).

data.table 1.4.1 :

* grouping is now 10+ times faster than tapply()
* extract is 100+ times faster than ==, as before
* 3 new vignettes: Intro, FAQ & Timings
* NEWS file contains further details



There is a new mailing list, datatable-help. Please do send comments,
