Hi, I was trying to create a graph in R Plot and was just wondering if there was any way to move the side header lable closer to the graph.
I've made the font smaller and put the lable into two lines, but when I put it into two lines the top line falls off the screen and the bottom line is rather far away from the numbered Y-Axis of ...

I have an svm in R and I would now like to plot the classificaiton space for this machine. I have found some examples on the Internet, but I can't seem to make sense of them.
My R script is as follows:
library(e1071)
day_of_week <- c(0,1,2,3,4,5,6)
holiday <- factor( c(T, F, F, F, F, F, T) )
model <- svm(day_of_week, holiday)

Hi, i was just wondering if there was a way to get rid of axis values, either the x axis or y axis respectively, in an r-plot graph. I know that axes = false will get rid of the entire axis, but i would only like to get rid of the numering. Thanks so much!

I have a histogram with several hundred items, for which I do a Q-Q plot. This results in EPS that is 2.5 megabytes large. This is too much for a figure that is only going to be included in a publication and is not going to be viewed at 100x magnification.
Is there any option in R to somehow output smaller EPS? I have searched docs to n...

There are at least two sparse matrix packages for R. I'm looking into these because I'm working with datasets that are too big and sparse to fit in memory with a dense representation. I want basic linear algebra routines, plus the ability to easily write C code to operate on them. Which library is the most mature and best to use?

I have data that comes out of a DB in a normalized way with a field for year, state, and value. I would like to do analysis on the data and need it formatted where each year is a field and not a record.So I would like the data where each record is a state and then theres a field for each year and each value for those fields are the value...

I understand that some databases have native support in R (e.g. MySQL) but you can connect to other DBs like MS SQL Server using RODBC. How much speed improvement does one gain for reading/writing with the native drivers vs. RODBC? What other DBs have native drivers in R? Is reading faster or slower than writing generally?

After creating large objects and running out of RAM, I will try and delete the objects in my current environment using
rm(list=ls())
When I check my RAM usage, nothing has changed. Even after calling gc() nothing has changed. I can only replenish my RAM by quitting R.
Anybody have advice for dealing with memory-intensive objects wi...

Hi everybody,
After learning R about 9 months ago, I am finally graduating from debugging by using print() statements every other line. I am now a pretty constant user of browser() and debug(). I have recently become aware of a few more tools: traceback(), trace(), and recover().
Does anybody have advice on when (and how) to use th...

I often write functions that need to see other objects in my environment. For example:
> a <- 3
> b <- 3
> x <- 1:5
> fn1 <- function(x,a,b) a+b+x
> fn2 <- function(x) a+b+x
> fn1(x,a,b)
[1] 7 8 9 10 11
> fn2(x)
[1] 7 8 9 10 11
As expected, both these functions are identical because fn2 can "see" a and b when it executes. But ...
