'Dang' Associated New Goodies

A collection of utility functions.

Dang: Dang Assorted New Goodies


This packages contains a small collection of helper functions I have been keeping around. Some of these have already appeared in a StackOverflow answer in 2009 or a blog post in 2011. Others are more local and less refined. Some may even be redundant---it is simply a collection of utility function I use, or maybe have used at some point.


The package tests cleanly as you would expect.


Dirk Eddelbuettel, plus contributions from others as noted in the respective files


Thanks to Josh Ulrich for discussions about plot.xts, Brodie Gaslam for discussions about his CRAN status checker, Kevin Denny and Kabira Namit for Stata commands demotivate and motivate, and possibly others I am omitting -- if your name belongs here email me!
