A collection of R Tips'n Tricks

What is R

R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is used in academia and industry, in many different fields, from (obviously) statistics, finance, high-thoughput biology (omics), … and can be expanded at infinity through package (CRAN, Bioconductor, R-Forge, omegahat).


The are vast amounts of documentation about R: - the R manuals page edited by the R Development Core Team - each function has it own manual page and some packages come with a global overview in the form of a vignette - many free documents and tutorials freely available - lots of general or specialised books - several mailing lists and dedicated QA sites - … - … - and this little collection of tips and tricks that I found useful to collect.
