I have a question that is probably pretty stupid, so apologies in advance...
I do a simple
> mydata.tab <- by(my.data.frame, my.data.frame$category, colMeans)
...works fine, but I need to output the results to some "flat" file (kind of table) to work with it in Excel etc.
So I am doing now
> capture.output(data.frame(unlist(mydata.tab)), file="mydata.txt")
...and process the result in Excel.
Do you know a more pretty way to do this task? Perhaps something other than 'by()' to make a table of colMeans?
