R Base Functions that You Never Use

I happen to find a list of all the R base functions, then I cannot help going through some of them. To satisfy my pride, I decided to look in the back order.

1. yinch – xinch

(Move the point in the unit of inch while plotting)

2. edit/vi/emacs/xemacs/xedit

testData <- edit(data)

3. getwd()/write()/unlink()

get the current working directory, write matrix to the working directory, delete the file

4. file()/file_test()/file.access()/file.remove()/file.copy()/file.exist()/file.info()/file.append()/file.symlink()/file.link()/file.path()/file.show()

… all the low level interface to the computer’s file system
