In my previous post, I wrote about displaying a Windows progress bar (useful when going through long for-loops).  In the comments, a couple of users recommended that I check out pbapply().  This function is great too (and works on all platforms)!  Basically, it allows you to perform all the apply() functions – apply(), lapply(), sapply(), etc. and adds in a progress bar.  Here is some code showing a very simple example:

###### Packages
library(pbapply)
 
###### Data
n<-1000
mat<-matrix(rnorm(n),ncol=10,nrow=100)
 
###### apply() vs pbapply()
x<-pbapply(mat,1,sum)
y<-apply(mat,1,sum)
 
x-y
