This is a quick note about an experiment I did this afternoon. You might know that the oldest version of R that RStudio still supports is 3.0.0. For the Rocker project, the oldest r-ver image they still provide is 3.1.0.
I am currently “learning Rust” 1. Like I have written in a previous post, I originally embarked on a hypothetical adventure of “learning Rust” for the sake of learning Rust. I am reading Rust Programming Language. A good book, but I am bored after...
Previously on this blog: my objectives / adjustment; actual OKR #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7.
TL;DR: Starting from 2023, I will not use the default branch name “master” or whatever “m”-based alternatives (“main” or whatever).
The package author (singular) tried very hard to write some C++ to achieve extremely little
Bob’s your uncle, I’ve finally done it! On Nov 31, I thought, um… writing 25 blog posts about emacs, how hard can it be?
He’s the one, who likes all our pretty songs. And he likes to sing along. And he likes to shoot his gun. But he knows not what it means, knows not what it means
On day 2, I talked about command discoverability and the pointlessness of memorizing key combinations. I also talked a bit about global-set-key on day 2 and keymaps on day7. This is an additional point to the topic.
Welcome to another episode of “A Poseur Wandering the emacs lisp World”, I am your host, chainsawriot. Today I will give another example of programming using emacs lisp to extend emacs.
There are some mythical figures in the folklore of emacs and their names are BSG’s office secretaries. Bernard Greenberg (a.k.a. BSG), the inventor of Multics Emacs, was an employee of Honeywell and probably those mythical figures were employees o...
Today is a little break, like I did on day 10.
In these final five posts, I will talk about my attitude towards emacs. But before talking about today’s topic, I also need to stress that I am a mediocre person at best. I am not a successful researcher in my field. The content of this webpage is...
ESS is great. ESS’s integration with the R package devtools makes it a greater tool. By default, the integration isn’t activated. One needs to explicitly activate ess-r-package.
Today and tomorrow I will talk how I write R code. This is too big a topic. But before that, I want to talk a bit about hooks.
If I could select, I won’t select \(\LaTeX\) to write my papers. Usually, the decisions to write in \(\LaTeX\) were not made by me, but my collaborators. I maintain that \(\LaTeX\) should be an intermediate format. A target to be compiled to. But ...— 1 of 206 — Next
