9 comments on “How Much of R is Written in R Part 2: Contributed Packages

  1. Of course 1 line of R is worth, on average, 22.75 lines of C/C++, so from that perspective R is doing much more of the work. OK, I'll admit I just made that number up, but you get the idea. Thanks for such a thorough analysis!

    Sincerely,
    Mean Old Boss

    • Actually, that should be the next assignment: for select (most important, not necessarily most used) R functions, what is growth factor from R to C. I assume, haven't looked into the R translation/compilation stuff, that there is an explicit conversion from R to C (ignoring the FORTRAN parts) source, and thence to the C compiler.

    • If we take the part-1-of-2.xls file (linked in the blog), convert it back into a tab delimited csv:

      [1] "eaf" "rindex" "TAHMMAnnot" "ref" "bit"
      [6] "fImport" "gdata" "WriteXLS" "ibdreg" "FEST"
      [11] "Rpad" "regtest" "copBasic"

      So for instance, in the eaf package, eafdiff and eafplot appear to be written in perl (file names are also included in the .xls files).

  3. Most people don't think of this, but what
    would happen if your car was stolen or the building burned down with your vehicle in it.
    They end up having a crushed door, hood, or bumper.
    Therefore it's essential that you simply check it and
    confirm it before applying the paint on your own auto.

  4. I said that an investor buying properties in Detroit can get a really
    high cash on cash return (10% to over 30%)--AND this includes the monthly fee to pay someone to manage
    your property for you. t have to put a lot of money into it to get it rent ready.

    I wanted to scream but I guess as a project manager,
    I knew this was poor risk management on the part of the company,
    not the poor representatives.
