Chapter 9 Importing, saving and managing data
Remember way back in Chapter 2 (you know…back when we first met…we were so young and full of excitement then…sorry, now I’m getting emotional…let’s move on… ) when I said everything in R is an object? Well, that’s still true. In this chapter, we’ll cover the basics of R object management. We’ll cover how to load new objects like external datasets into R, how to manage the objects that you already have, and how to export objects from R into external files that you can share with other people or store for your own future use.
