For example, the ascii files for this book are on the book website and were created with point separation. " option, even if your computer uses comma separation. If you use the wrong setting, R will import all numerical data as categorical variables. In the next chapter, we discuss the str function, and recommend that you always execute it immediately after importing the data to verify the format.

5 Again, the dot is part of the variable name. 1 into R. It is laborious, but typing the following code into an editor, then copying and pasting it into R does the job. 7) Note that we are paying a price for the extra spaces; each command now extends into two lines. As long as you end the line with a backslash or a comma, R will consider it as one command. It may be a good convention to capitalize variable names. This avoids confusion with existing function commands. head). Most internal functions do not begin with a capital letter; hence we can be reasonably sure that Head is not an existing function.

13. Fig. 13 Overview of the process of installing and loading packages in R. If a package is part of the base installation, or has previously been installed, use the library function. If a package’s operation depends upon other packages, they will be automatically loaded, provided they have been installed. If not, they can be manually installed. 2 How Good Is a Package? During courses, participants sometimes ask about the quality of these usercontributed packages. Some of the packages contain hundreds of functions written by leading scientists in their field, who have often written a book in which the methods are described.
