Sample text

The output of the sink() function to a text file We turn our attention away from the output for a little while, knowing that we’ll revisit this topic in several more chapters. Output of various types are necessary, and they tend to depend on objectives and circumstances. 26 CHAPTER 2 ■ PROGRAMMING UTILITIES The next chapter provides tools for quickly repeating similar operations again and again as well as handling course corrections based on the environment. Those techniques combine with these methods to quite handily automate file management on a relatively large scale.

We use next to skip one pass through a loop, and we break to end the loop entirely. Both of these keep the code running; they just control what happens inside the loop in which they are called. Take a look at the following code to see what happens: i <- 0 while(i < 5){ + i <- i + 1 + if(i ==2) {next()} + print(i) + } [1] 1 [1] 3 [1] 4 [1] 5 It is important to recognize that the location of next is significant.. We could order those three lines of code inside the while function in six ways. At least one way creates an infinite loop, and at least one way has no noticeable influence whatsoever.

In the case of loops, this happens when they stop repeating. So, if you want to hold onto results, you need to build the container for those results outside the loop. Again, we go deeper into specifics in the next chapter. The for loop is the first (and perhaps most controversial in R) automator we discuss. In many computer languages, for() is considered rather fast, but not so in R. Nevertheless, this function is easy to understand and use. Human-readable code is not something to eschew needlessly.
