I learned about edit() recently and it's nice. For those on the list
who haven't found it yet, try:
> X = data.frame(100:0,200:100,300:200)
It gives you a (low grade) GUI where you can look at the data frame,
and make changes.
I was curious about a few things:
1. tk has full featured support for "spreadsheet type" tables
where the user can move around efficiently, make changes, etc.
Perhaps it would be possible to make edit() use this?
2. How might one write a function "ooedit" which would do the
Write out the data as a .csv file
Run openoffice on it
Pick up the resulting .csv file upon exit and return it.
My R knowledge doesn't yet support writing this..
