Are there any R mavens here?

I'm trying to learn R; STEEP learning curve + old(er) brain is just having problems.

I have a "R for dummies" book coming tomorrow sometime. I'm not saying that it will answer all my questions, but it may be a start. The on-line documentation isn't making a difference.

If you are somewhat proficient in getting R to read a file, PM me please.

Also, I will post my question on other boards more specific to both R and the package I am using.

Thanks in advance,

Diana

I'll be no help, as it's been a really long time since I've written any scripts, but I do remember using RStudio, not just R, wirh my MBP. Can you load any file at all with read function?

The original problem was getting the data read into R. I found that the problem was actually multiple: one that Monterey needed to give R permission to read from the desktop (where I put stuff to test, as it's the easiest to find; two that I had to set the path to something a bit simpler but not as clear (to me) to allow Monterey to see "hey, do you need to get there?" and give me the error; and adding another switch to the function to stop it from truncating my data.

Now, on to the next issue: I need to transform the data now the I have it in a dataFrame (I think that's what it's called). Yeah, seems like I'm learning a completely different language on top of everything else! damn you smiley smiley-shocked003

Edit: nothing like going to sleep thinking of it only to wake up thinking of it.

Happy you got there. I was asking about reading anything at all because permissions came to mind. I wasn't doing any bio-medical, but once i learned some syntax, I started to like R.

What about Julia and Python? Do you use those as well?

I am currently doing some light work in Python and I am interested in R and Julia, but I want to stay focused on Python for a while.
