The software R (freely available for download at http://www.r-project.org/) is utilized throughout this text. Some commonly used functions are included in R by default. Other functions are available in packages from sources independent of the authors. The remaining functions are defined in the NSM3 package. The user needs only to install (once) and load (at the beginning of each R session) the NSM3 package to have access to all of the functions used throughout the text. The independently maintained packages will be automatically included. Readers who are unfamiliar with R are referred to the “Introduction to R” available at http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-intro.html.
Any bugs, suggestions, or other issues for the functions defined in the NSM3 package should be sent to Grant Schneider at email@example.com. Issues relating to independent functions should be referred to their respective maintainers.
The following is a table of the R functions used throughout the text, a short description of each, and the package where each is defined. More extensive descriptions and examples can be found in the R documentation, which may be accessed by entering ?function.name (with function.name replaced by the desired function) in the R console. General package information (including additional functions not referenced in the text) can be obtained by entering help(package=”NSM3”) in the R console.
