A forest plot that allows for multiple confidence intervals per row, custom fonts for each text element, custom confidence intervals, text mixed with expressions, and more. The aim is to extend the use of forest plots beyond meta-analyses. This is a more general version of the original 'rmeta' package's forestplot() function and relies heavily on the 'grid' package.

Tools for making the descriptive "Table 1" used in medical articles, a transition plot for showing changes between categories (also known as a Sankey diagram), flow charts by extending the grid package, a method for variable selection based on the SVD, B<c3><a9>zier lines with arrows complementing the ones in the 'grid' package, and more.

Methods for manipulating regression models and for describing these in a style adapted for medical journals. Contains functions for generating an HTML table with crude and adjusted estimates, plotting hazard ratio, plotting model estimates and confidence intervals using forest plots, extending this to comparing multiple models in a single forest plots. In addition to the descriptive methods, there are add-ons for the robust covariance matrix provided by the 'sandwich' package, a function for adding non-linearities to a model, and a wrapper around the 'Epi' package's Lexis() functions for time-splitting a dataset when modeling non-proportional hazards in Cox regressions.

Tables with state-of-the-art layout elements such as row spanners, column spanners, table spanners, zebra striping, and more. While allowing advanced layout, the underlying css-structure is simple in order to maximize compatibility with word processors such as 'MS Word' or 'LibreOffice'. The package also contains a few text formatting functions that help outputting text compatible with HTML/LaTeX.
