Up: Example Data Sets   [Contents]


6.1 Data Sets from R

Many of Tablicious’ example data sets are based on the example datasets found in R’s datasets package. R can be found at https://www.r-project.org/, and documentation for its datasets is at https://rdrr.io/r/datasets/datasets-package.html. Thanks to the R developers for producing the original data sets here.

Tablicious’ examples’ code tries to replicate the R examples, so it can be useful to compare the two of them if you are moving from one language to another.

Core Octave currently lacks some of the plotting features found in the R examples, such as LOWESS smoothing and linear model characteristic plots, so you will just find “TODO” placeholders for these in Tablicious’ example code.
