The initialization sequence in R

Here are some of my notes based on a toe-dipping into R


  • use .libPaths() to get the path where the libraries are located:
    • > .libPaths()  –> this is in RGui
      [1] “C:/Users/agoswami/Documents/R/win-library/3.3”
      [2] “C:/Program Files/R/R-3.3.0/library”


  • One can look for the Rprofile file like so:
    • $ find . -name ‘*Rprofile’ -type f 2>/dev/null
      ./Microsoft/MRO/R-3.2.5/library/base/R/Rprofile –> this is MRO (Microsoft R Open)
      ./Microsoft/MRO-for-RRE/8.0/R-3.2.2/library/base/R/Rprofile –> this is MRS (Microsoft R Server)
      ./Microsoft SQL Server/130/R_SERVER/library/base/R/Rprofile –> this is MRS (Microsoft R Server) through SQL install
      ./R/R-3.3.0/library/base/R/Rprofile  –> this is a regular R install
