ok, i'm all for it. > Assorted comments: > - Why is the "append" option controlled by the predefined format? you just wrote it yourself: > "append, col.names, sep, dec and qmethod cannot be altered." ^^^^^^^^ ;-) that option and the column names are the deactivated settings i was referring to, for write.csv() and write.csv2(). they are not all on the same tab -- i tried to make the dialog as similar to the import plugin as possible, but there are quite some differences. > - Uncommenting arguments, that do not apply, is a nifty idea, but does come > with some drawbacks: > - Bloats the generated code > - Seems to suggest that these _could_ be customized for write.csv(2). > However, the R help says: "append, col.names, sep, dec and qmethod cannot be > altered." I'd suggest stripping these. sure, this is only an idea. but let me explain how it came to this: firstly, i was thinking about people who want to learn R; there should also appear an explaining comment above the write.csv() call explaining that the commented options cannot be changed here (btw, if you try, write.csv() throws a warning saying the same). secondly, the commented options show the value that they're set to internally; for instance, "col.names" depends on the setting of "row.names". @aaron: what do you think would be most useful? the generated code currently reads: # some options can't be changed with write.csv() # they have been commented out to show the values they are set to write.csv( x=, file="", #append=FALSE, #sep=",", eol="\n", na="NA", #dec=".", row.names=TRUE, #col.names=NA, #qmethod="double", fileEncoding="" ) the stripped alternative would be: write.csv( x=, file="", eol="\n", na="NA", row.names=TRUE, fileEncoding="" ) the R code currently also includes all defaults. if we want to strip it down to the absolutely necessary arguments only, it would result in just this: write.csv( x=, file="" ) > - Remove the "data.frame"-warning (see my last mail). with pleasure. > - For encoding specification, import_spss and import_stata share some code > (currently in the form of a <snippet>. It might make sense to turn this into > an embeddable plugin, and use it. i actually included that snipped first, but it added another full tab and had a checkbox for "converting strings" which i didn't find the best wording here. so i copied the dropdown menu -- and added the checked "(default)" option, since write.table() defaults to 'fileEncoding=""'. having something to embed would be great, but i still didn't really get how to write an embeddable plugin ;-) viele grüße :: m.eik -- dipl. psych. meik michalke institut f"ur experimentelle psychologie abt. f"ur diagnostik und differentielle psychologie heinrich-heine-universit"at d-40204 d"usseldorf
