Description data I/O utilties file utilities data utilities Author(s)


A collection of utility code for Mark J Cowley. This description file only scratches the surface. The goal of this package is to be useful, yet very lightweight with as few depedencies as possible. Note none of this code is guaranteed to run on Windows, but should work on OSX and linux. This is because I often use system() calls to speed some things up.

data I/O utilties

pbpaste and pbcopy for copying objects to and from the system clipboard. read.table.wide and read.table.fast for importing very wide tables, and susbets of columns from very long tables, respectively.
write.delim and write.delim.list. see also my excelIO package for reading & writing Excel files. readLine, skipLine for parsing text files.

file utilities

file.gzip, zip, zipdir, file.issymlink, file.move, file.numlines is.dir, is.url, dir.Rdata, dir.remove, dir.size, crossplatform.unzip

data utilities

alleq even odd
collate, interleave.columns
rename.column, col2rownames, row2colnames, colnames2row, rownames2col for moving columns and rows in and out of data.frame's. tocsv and uncsv to converting vectors to/from csv data
