Hunting a histogram variant

...it in recent textbooks. So it may be one of those older graphical displays that's just fallen out of use.
General questions:
i) Does this thing have a name?
ii) Can anyone point me to a literature source for it?
... and the R question:
ii) Is it already hiding somewhere in an R package?*

Slight oversight in the type documentation

So I was looking at the type reference, and noticed that for a lot of the
types, no namevar was listed. When I checked the types in the code, for
each of those omissions, the namevar was simply "name". Now, it might be
self evident that this is the case, but a little documentation couldn''t
hurt, If not in each type, at least in the section where it describes what
namevars

A little assistance with Sieve

Any advice will be gratefully received.

Well, for large values of 32... such as 64.

Yesterday I had raised following query which was addressed by Mr Ellison. The query and the wonderful solution as provided by Mr. Ellison are as given below.
## PROBLEM

''R'' and ''Yield to Maturity''

Dear R helpers
I am calculating the ''Yield to Maturity'' for the Bond with following characteristics.
Its a $1000 face value, 3 year bond with 10% annual coupon and is priced at 101. The yield to maturity can be calculated after solving the equation -
1010 = [100 / (1+ytm)] + [100 / (1+ytm)^2] + [ 1100 / (1 + ytm)^3]
This can be solved by trial and error

How to make Ordinary Kriging using gstat predict?

Hi,
I am new in R and trying to implement an algorithm which makes ordinary kriging by using gstat library and the predict method.
I use the predict method as following:
First, I create an object g:
g <- gstat(id="tec", formula=TEC ~ 1, data=data) ## Create gstat object called g
And then I use this object in the predict.
p <- predict.gstat(g, model=mod, newdata=predGrid,

Getting Rd pages right for redefined S3 generic

...R cmd that
it should not look for Rd docs for cbind and cbind.default in my package
whilst still having my generic handle dispatch correctly?
It looks like one answer _might_ be not to export my redefined cbind -
but will a local generic still work properly if it''s not exported?

switch of cex adjustment with mfrow?

...s an aside I didn't immediately find any comment on the effect of argument order in ?par. It just means you have to be careful exactly what you specify.
It may also mean that for future-proofing against possible changes in par execution order, you might want to use separate calls anyway.

Latin hypercube sampling from a non-uniform distribution

...ple way is to use the uniform random output of randomLHS as input to the quantile function for your desired distribution(s).
For example:
q <- randomLHS(1000, 3)
colnames(q) <- c("A", "B", "mort")
q[, "mort"] <- qpois(q[,"mort"], 1.5)

Precision of values > 53 bits

stats 'dist' euclidean distance calculation

You should probably look at something like dist.gene in the ape package: see

Interesting behavior of lm() with small, problematic data sets

...th R 3.4.1 on linux, I get coefficients and residuals that are
numerically exact, F-statistic = NaN, p-value = NA, R-squared = NaN, etc.
All of which is what ought to happen, given that the response variable
(y) is not actually variable.

Kernel panic on import / interrupted zfs destroy

...for several hours. Can zdb recover from this kind of situation (with a half-destroyed filesystem that panics the kernel on import?) What is the impact of the above zdb operation without aok=1? Is there any likelihood of a recovery of non-affected filesystems?
Any suggestions?

Route first or NAT?

Hi,
I''m trying to use shorewall for a RAS dialup solution
We have networks we need to connect to with the same ranges internally
(i.e. 2 separate users with a 192.168.0.0/24 range). We connect to these
via a pptp tunnel (or isdn)
The problem we have is that we need to access these networks all the
time, so allocate them a range from our internal range. This will then
be NATed to

speeding up "sum of squared differences" calculation

All,
I am using a sum of squared differences in the objective function of an optimization problem I am doing and I have managed to speed it up using the outer function versus the nested for loops, but my suspicion is that the calculation could be done even quicker. Please see the code below for a simple example. If anyone can point out a faster way I would appreciate it greatly.
Thanks,

Package install_options

Now that the install_options parameter can be applied to all package
providers, does anyone have advice on the best way to specify options to
yum?
For example, considering the common pattern of leaving a repo disabled most
of the time, if I wanted to pass
--enablerepo=epel
to yum, would I set
install_options => [''--enablerepo=epel'']
or

hiera_hash lookups for included classes?

When using "include" to include a class Hiera helpfully performs an
autolookup on the parameters of the included class. Specially-named
variable names are automatically pulled from the Hiera datastore(s) and
passed into the included module. This is pretty awesome.
But it looks like included resources _only_ perform a hiera() lookup. If we
have a hash defined in several levels of our
