Note that the above code will not run if the computeEstimate() function is not defined (I just made it up for the purposes of this demonstration). The loop agove is a bit dangerous because there’s no guarantee it will stop. You could get in a situation where the values of x0 and x1 oscillate back and forth and never converge. Better to set a hard limit on the number of iterations by using a for loop and then report whether convergence was achieved or not. next, break next is used to skip an iteration of a loop.

In order to use this option, you have to know the class of each column in your data frame. If all of the columns are “numeric”, for example, then you can just set colClasses = "numeric". txt", colClasses = classes) • Set nrows. This doesn’t make R run faster but it helps with memory usage. A mild overestimate is okay. You can use the Unix tool wc to calculate the number of lines in a file. In general, when using R with larger datasets, it’s also useful to know a few things about your system. • • • • How much memory is available on your system?

Now we have lots of data that is text data and they don’t always represent categorical variables. So you may want to set this to be FALSE in those cases. If you always want this to be FALSE, you can set a global option via options(stringsAsFactors = FALSE). I’ve never seen so much heat generated on discussion forums about an R function argument than the stringsAsFactors argument. Seriously. txt") In this case, R will automatically • skip lines that begin with a # • figure out how many rows there are (and how much memory needs to be allocated) • figure what type of variable is in each column of the table.
