Snowdoop/partools Package Now on CRAN

I’ve now placed the partools package, including Snowdoop, on CRAN.  No major new functions since my last posting, but the existing functions have been made more versatile and convenient, and the documentation is now more detailed, with more examples and so on.  I do have more functions planned.

It is all platform independent, except for the dbs() debugging tool, which requires some Unix-family (Mac, Linux, Cygwin) utilities, e.g. screen.

  1. Norm,

    Thanks in advance.

    I am currently using partools on Windows 10 64 bit and liking it.

    I am interested to know a little bit more about filesplit(). If the file itself is very large how can I split it into a specified number of chunks without reading the entire file into R (or alternatively reading chunk by chunk data then splitting).

    Once again, thank you very much for the time you have given.



    1. I’m glad to hear the package is useful for you.

      The filesplit() function never reads the entire file into memory. It does exactly what you seem to want. Let me know if I have misunderstood your question.
