Where do R commands come from?

May 13, 2010 in Data

Ever wondered why R commands have those funny and sometimes confusing abbreviations? I admit I always found "c" (which [c]ombines elements) confusing... especially when I was starting out, and would bind it to test variables. In the spirit of upholding my end of TGR's bargain (in which I provide items of nerdy interest and you get to read them without searching for them, thus protecting your reputation), here's a list of 150 common R commands and their derivations.

You're very welcome.
