Hi Hötzi,

» BTW, I love that in 4.0.0 the default of stringsAsFactors was changed to FALSE.
» Something I regularly forgot in imports or assigning data.frames;-)

Slightly OT: :-D:-D I am relieved to hear it is not only me who has trouble with it. I can't tell you how many times I have been on the verge of a mental breakdown because I absentmindedly leave out that effing parameter. Happened as recently as yesterday. R is a smart language but I am not a very smart coder :sleeping:

I have to admit I am frequently also resorting to stuff like

AN=function(x) {return(as.numeric(as.character(x)))}

in order to compensate for the errors and omissions I make left and right and everywhere on data frames. It is disgusting, I know. :crying:

I could be wrong, but...

Best regards,

R's base package has 274 reserved words and operators, along with 1761 functions. I can use 18 of them (about 14 of them properly). I believe this makes me the Donald Trump of programming.

Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage
for which he himself was responsible.
Nonage is the inability to use one’s own intellect
