Developing a user-friendly regular expression function (easyGregexpr)

May 4, 2010
By

In the past few months, I've developed a set of functions for automating model estimation and interpretation using Mplus, an outstanding latent variable modeling program that has unparalleled flexibility for complex models (e.g., factor mixture models). I recently rolled these functions into an R package called MplusAutomation. Because the package focuses on extracting various parameters from text...

Using MKL-Linked R in Eclipse

Setting up Eclipse to use MKL-Linked RIn my previous post, I showed how to compile R 2.10.1 using Intel's Math Kernel Library for the BLAS/LAPACK interface. Even though it takes a bit of time to setup, I think the noticeably improved calculation speed justifies the effort. Although I'm happy to use R from the command line for basic stuff,...
