littler 0.1.2

January 14, 2009

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Version 0.1.2 of
r (pronounced
was just rolled up.

This version adds two new command-line switches:

  • -t selects per-session temporary directories in the same way
    as R does (with thanks to Paul Gilbert
    for the suggestion), and

  • -q skips autoloading of default libraries at startup for another
    small yet noticeable gain in startup speed (with thanks to Simon Urbanek).

As usual, our code in our
svn archive
, on my r page, and in the
local directory here. A fresh package
is in Debian’s incoming queue, and Jeff’s
littler page
at Vanderbilt should reflect the new release soon too.
