Hi all
Well, first: happy new year...
Second: I write a function in R that might interest some other people.
On the other hand, I am closer to beginners than experts; I don't know
how valuable my code is. I don't know how long it will take to me to
create a library and I don't know if it's worth to. So before starting
this long process, I would like some advices, both on the interest it
present, on the way of using it and on the inner R code...
My function is called "r2lUniv" for "R to LaTeX, Univariate analysis".
Given a variable, it performs some basic analysis in R and generates
LaTeX code to include in a document that print the analysis in a clean
LaTeX way. The basic analysis depends of the variable type. 4 types are
considered:
- Nominal: modality, size, barplot
- Ordinal: modality, size, quartile, barplot
- Discrete: modality, size, mean, var, quartile, boxplot, barplot
- Continuous: mean, var, quartile, boxplot, barplot
A generalization of r2lUniv deals with data.frame by runnig the basic
analysis on every column. So to use it:
> dataFrame <- read.csv("myData.csv")
> r2lUniv(dataFrame,"fileOut.tex")
It performs the basic analysis and creates all graphs. Then I add
\input{fileOut.tex} in my main.tex file.
My source file is available at:

It is definitely NOT a code ready for a library, there is probably bugs
in it, all comments and all variables used for testing are in. But
still, any advices will be welcome...

PS: Does the manual "Writing R Extensions" exists in French? Or
anything equivalent?
