Updating r version
R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
If this type of coding is fun/easy for you, you can help me improve this package on github.
Cool new features I think may be added (by me or others) are: Final note, I would like to thank the many people who have developed WONDERFUL tools for making R package development possible (and even somewhat fast), on Windows. Brian Ripley and Duncan Murdoch for Rtools, also Uwe Ligges for his work on CRAN, Hadley Wickham for devtools (in general, and for its documentation), Yihui Xie for roxygen2, JJ and others in the RStudio team for RStudio, the people behind git and github, and more.
There are probably more things I can thank these people for, and many more people I should thank, but I can’t figure who you are probably (feel free to e-mail me, I appreciate you work even if it is not clear to me your are behind it).
Andrew Gelman recently lamented the lack of an easy upgrade process for R (probably more relevant on Windows than Linux).
Does anyone have a good trick for doing the upgrade, from installing the software to copying all the settings/packages over?
To update R, you can simply run the following code: The package also offers functions for installing various other software on Windows. Since this is my first R package, I might have (e.g: probably have) missed something here or there.
