Hi All,

I was new to R and this list a couple of mounths ago. When processing my 
data I got tremendous support from R-Help mailing list.

The solutions I have worked out with your help might be also helpful for 
others. I have put the solutions in a couple of small functions with 
documentation and tests. You can find the software on Sourceforge.net at


You should download at least "r_toolbox.R" and store it in a directory 
like "r_toolbox" in your favourite project folder. Within "r_toolbox" 
folder put all the other files. You have to adjust the variable 
"t_toolbox_path" to your favourite project directory including the 
"r_toolbox" folder, e. g. "C:\My-Projects\t-toolbox\" on Windows or 
"/home/username/my-projects/r-toolbox" on Unix-like systems.

You can use them for your projects. Although I developed them with great 
care these functions come with absolutely no warrenty. You need to use 
them at your own risk. As the functions are small and overseeable you will 
find out quickly by reading the source code that the functions are save to 

If you have any recommendations or improvement proposals please get back 
to me.

Kind regards
