This tip may be useful in the situations when you need to set the number of digits to print for the different columns in a matrix/data.frame to be outputted as a LaTeX table.

For example:

`#install.packages("xtable")`

#library(xtable)

tmp <- matrix(rnorm(9), 3, 3)

xtmp <- xtable(tmp)

digits(xtmp) <- c(0,0,3,4)

print(xtmp, include.rownames = FALSE) # row names suppressed

See here for a nice gallery depicting a large variety of outputs you can produce using the xtable package.
