Leisch, Friedrich (2008): Creating R Packages: A Tutorial. In: Brito, Paula (ed.) : Compstat 2008 - Proceedings in Computational Statistics. Heidelberg, Germany: Physica-Verlag. [PDF, 400kB]


This tutorial gives a practical introduction to creating R packages. We discuss how object oriented programming and S formulas can be used to give R code the usual look and feel, how to start a package from a collection of R functions, and how to test the code once the package has been created. As running example we use functions for standard linear regression analysis which are developed from scratch.
