littler 0.3.1 Release Now Available

‘littler’ was started as a CRAN package by Jeffrey Horner in summer of 2006. Now, more than ten years later, the second release of littler is now available. littler is the first command-line interface for R and predates Rscript. What is littler? littler provides the r program with a simplified command-line interface for GNU R, allowing for the direct execution of commands by using piping, where the output of a particular program will be supplied as input to the next program, as well as adding the ability for writing ‘hash-bang’ scripts, i.e. creating executable files. As mentioned in the R-Bloggers, the new release of littler is said to be faster than the previous version and allows for piping as well as shebang scripting via #! , which uses command-line arguments consistently which makes it start faster. Changes in littler v0.3.1 are:    Changes in examples  - install2.r now passes on extra options past -- to R CMD INSTALL (PR #37 by Steven Pav)  - Added rcc.r to run rcmd check::rcmd check()  - Added (still simple) render.r to render (R)markdown  - Several examples now support the -x or --usage flag to show extended help.    Changes in build system  - The AM_LDFLAGS variable is now set and used too (PR #38 by Mattias Ellert)  - Three more directories, used when an explicit installation directory is set, are excluded (also #38 by Mattias)  - Travis CI is now driven via run.sh from our fork and deploys all packages as .deb binaries using our PPA where needed    Changes in package  - System Requirements now mentions the need for libR, i.e. an R built with a shared library so that we can embed R.  - The docopt and rcmd check packages are now suggested and added to the Travis installation.  - A new helper function r() is now provided and exported so that the package can be imported (closes#40).  - URL and BugReports links were added to DESCRIPTION.    Changes in documentation  - The help output for install Github.r was corrected (PR #39 by Brandon Bertelsen) For the complete details on the release, click here.

littler 0.3.1 Release Now Available

‘littler’ was started as a CRAN package by Jeffrey Horner in summer of 2006. Now, more than ten years later, the second release of littler is now available. littler is the first command-line interface for R and predates Rscript.

What is littler?

littler provides the r program with a simplified command-line interface for GNU R, allowing for the direct execution of commands by using piping, where the output of a particular program will be supplied as input to the next program, as well as adding the ability for writing ‘hash-bang’ scripts, i.e. creating executable files.

As mentioned in the R-Bloggers, the new release of littler is said to be faster than the previous version and allows for piping as well as shebang scripting via #! , which uses command-line arguments consistently which makes it start faster.

Changes in littler v0.3.1 are:

   Changes in examples

 - install2.r now passes on extra options past -- to R CMD INSTALL (PR #37 by Steven Pav)

 - Added rcc.r to run rcmd check::rcmd check()

 - Added (still simple) render.r to render (R)markdown

 - Several examples now support the -x or --usage flag to show extended help.

   Changes in build system

 - The AM_LDFLAGS variable is now set and used too (PR #38 by Mattias Ellert)

 - Three more directories, used when an explicit installation directory is set, are excluded (also #38 by Mattias)

 - Travis CI is now driven via run.sh from our fork and deploys all packages as .deb binaries using our PPA where needed

   Changes in package

 - System Requirements now mentions the need for libR, i.e. an R built with a shared library so that we can embed R.

 - The docopt and rcmd check packages are now suggested and added to the Travis installation.

 - A new helper function r() is now provided and exported so that the package can be imported (closes#40).
