R to Word, revisited

September 12, 2011
By

In a previous post (a long time ago) I discussed a way to get a R data frame into a Word table. The code in that entry was essentially a brute force way of wrapping R data in RTF code, but that RTF code was the bare minimum. There was no optimization of widths, or borders, or...

I think I have found a superior solution to integrating Ultraedit and R. See my post over at IDM Users forum.

Ultraedit to R

January 21, 2011
By

My favorite text editor on Windows is Ultraedit, but it does not have a nice interface to R in the same vein as Emacs/ESS, Tinn-R, or Eclipse. (I have never used Eclipse.) Ultraedit is powerful enough to submit whole R programs...

Well, I'm taking the plunge and learning Python. We'll see how this goes. Then I'll try NumPy (and SciPy, if it gets ported), and see of I can get R and Python talking.

R – not the epic fail we thought

April 16, 2010
By

I usually like AnnMaria's witty insight. I can relate to a lot of what she is saying. After all SAS and family life are large parts of my life, too. But you can imagine the reaction she provoked in saying the following:I know that R is free and I am ac...

My implementation of Berry and Berry’s hierarchical Bayes algorithm for adverse events

November 20, 2009
By

I've been working on this for quite some time (see here for a little background), so I'm pleased that it looks close to done at least as far as the core algorithm. It uses global variables for now, and I'm sure there are a couple of other bugs lurking, but here it is, after the jump.const.sqrt2pi <-...

Working on a drug safety project

November 20, 2009
By

In order to move some of my personal interests along, I have been trying to implement the methodology found in Berry and Berry's article Accounting for Multiplicities in Assessing Drug Safety. This methodology uses the MedDRA hierarchy to improve the p...

Causal inference and biostatistics

July 11, 2009
By

I've been following the discussion on causal inference over at Gelman's blog with quite a bit of interest. Of course, this is in response to Judea Pearl's latest book on causal inference, which differs quite a bit from the theory that had been forwarde...

This time, I create an RTF file:# function: my.rtf.table# purpose: convert a matrix, data.frame, or array into a rtf table# output: text for RTF, possibly written to a file# inputs:# tab - a table, dataframe, or array (needs rownames and colnames)# outfile - name of file (or console if NULL,...

Using R in consulting: playing nice with Microsoft Word

October 17, 2008
By

As I use R more in consulting, I'm finding the need to make the quick transition from R to Microsoft products (usually Word) more serious. (I'm using a Windows platform, but I'm sure the challenges on the Mac would be similar.) I simply don't have time to do the text manipulations necessary to convert text to Word tables, for...
