gdata: Various R Programming Tools for Data Manipulation

Various R programming tools for data manipulation, including: - medical unit conversions ('ConvertMedUnits', 'MedUnits'), - combining objects ('bindData', 'cbindX', 'combine', 'interleave'), - character vector operations ('centerText', 'startsWith', 'trim'), - factor manipulation ('levels', 'reorder.factor', 'mapLevels'), - obtaining information about R objects ('object.size', 'elem', 'env', 'humanReadable', 'is.what', 'll', 'keep', 'ls.funs', 'Args','nPairs', 'nobs'), - manipulating MS-Excel formatted files ('read.xls', 'installXLSXsupport', 'sheetCount', 'xlsFormats'), - generating fixed-width format files ('write.fwf'), - extricating components of date & time objects ('getYear', 'getMonth', 'getDay', 'getHour', 'getMin', 'getSec'), - operations on columns of data frames ('matchcols', 'rename.vars'), - matrix operations ('unmatrix', 'upperTriangle', 'lowerTriangle'), - operations on vectors ('case', 'unknownToNA', 'duplicated2', 'trimSum'), - operations on data frames ('frameApply', 'wideByFactor'), - value of last evaluated expression ('ans'), and - wrapper for 'sample' that ensures consistent behavior for both scalar and vector arguments ('resample').
