runDemos: Interactive GUI for R Demos

Description Usage Arguments Details Note Author(s) See Also


An interactive GUI for accessing demos from any R package installed on the user's system. runDemos is a convenient alternative to R's demo function.





display demos from a particular package (optional).


If the argument package is not specified, the function will look for demos in all packages installed on the user's system.


The runDemos GUI attempts to retain the user's objects and restore the working directory. However, pre-existing objects will be overwritten if their names coincide with names used by the various demos. Also, depending on conditions, the user may lose working directory focus. We suggest that cautious users run this demo from a project where data objects are not critical.
