Topics planned for this Meeting are:
Using RStudio to Organize and Document Work. With RStudio, a mouse-click is all that is needed to move between one project with its associated setup to another project with its associated setup. If you are working with a large code file, it is easy to fold out of sight code that you wish for the time being to hide. RStudio recognizes Sweave (either knitr or Sweave style) markup files, and handles them accordingly.
R Markdown is a very simple markup language that can be used to html documents that may include R code, R output, tables and graphs. The markup codes, and associated option settings, determine what appears in the output.
The knitr implementation of Sweave is a much more sophisticated markup language that is used with LaTeX files. It is in important respects simpler and more flexible than Sweave.
We will discuss what should be done for future meetings.
John Maindonald will comment.
