partools package:

July 17, 2015: In the next few days, I will be updating my partools package on CRAN. It will contain greatly enhanced versions of many of the tools used in the book.

The enhnaced package is already on GitHub, and you can always download the latest version of partools from my GitHub site. If you have the devtools package, run

> install_git('git://github.com/matloff/partools')

Otherwise: Download the ZIP file; unzip it; build from the resulting directory/folder; and install, e.g. run

unzip master.zip
R CMD build partools-master/
R CMD INSTALL -l ~/Pub/Rlib/ partools_1.1.0.tar.gz

where of course you'll need to specify your own library directory and the version number may differ.

For an introduction, type:

> library(partools)
> vignette('partools')
