variables-packages: General Information on the 'variables' Package

Description Author(s) References


The variables package offers a small collection of objects describing conceptual variables and corresponding methods, for example for generating a grid of values for a (yet) unmeasured variable.

The package was written to support the basefun and mlt packages and will be of limited use outside these packages.
