## OT: What a relief :-) [R for BE/BA]

Ahoy, my capt’n!

» Slightly OT: I am relieved to hear it is not only me who has trouble with it.

This annoyed me for ages (IIRC, I started with in 2003).

» 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.

The only solution. Tons of posts at stackoverflow and even mentioned in R’s FAQs.
