R news + Unix tools with R (make, screen, mail)

A wealth of information about R can be found in R news (list of articles here). It’s going to be replaced by an R journal soon.

One example of something cool:


164 Andrew Robinson. Augmenting R with Unix tools. R News, 7(1):30-33, April 2007. [ bib | http | .pdf ] http://cran.r-project.org/doc/Rnews/Rnews\_2007-1.pdf

Use screen to check log running scripts, use make to update stuff. Use mail to notify yourself. I haven’t tried mail yet…I should give it a try soon.
