Packages() The output can be quite long, especially if you have downloaded additional packages to your version of R. Running and manipulating packages is examined shortly, but first you should read the next section where you will consider additional packages and what they might do for you. What Extra Packages Can Do for You The basic installation of R provides a wealth of commands that carry out many of the tasks that you might need. However, it cannot do everything—there may well be occasions when you need to run a particular type of analysis and the commands you need are not available.
For convenience, R provides two alternative commands, log10() and log2(), which allow you to specify base 10 or 2 more simply. 30103). The next logarithm commands you used illustrated how to “reverse” natural and regular bases. Finally, you evaluated the sine of 45°. However, because R uses radians rather than degrees you had to multiply the angle in degrees by π divided by 180 to obtain the correct result. 707, essentially reversing the process from before. However, R works in radians so you multiplied the result by 180 divided by π to get an answer in degrees.
Learning how to deal with these packages is useful, because you may want to add extra analytical routines to your installation of R to extend its capabilities. Standard Command Packages When you use the search() command you can see what packages are loaded and ready for use. You can see, for example, the graphics package, which carries out many of the routines required to create graphs. Several other packages are ready-installed but not automatically loaded and immediately available. For example, the splines package contains routines for smoothing curves, but is not automatically loaded.
