### Re: [R] Wild card characters

Another way to do it is: sub([.].*, .41, x) This says to replace the first dot and everything after by .41. When . appears in a character class, i.e. [.], then you don't need backslashes. Also you don't need backslashes in the second argument. On 7/30/05, Uwe Ligges [EMAIL PROTECTED]

### Re: [R] Drawing a graph with vertices and edges using tcl/tk

Another approach is the Bell Labs graphviz system. See http://www.graphviz.com For an example of using it from R, see the dot.proto function in the 'proto' package. dot.proto generates dot language output to draw a graphviz graph of the objects in any R program written using 'proto'.

Note that if the only difference is the addition of ... to the formal arguments then you can just do this once in your session before using farimaSim: formals(farimaSim) - c(formals(farimaSim), alist(... = )) Now farimaSim will have ... as an argument. e.g. formals(farimaSim) -
