Wozu sollte man R lernen? Da gibt es viele Grunde: Weil man damit naturlich ganz andere Moglichkeiten hat als mit einer Tabellenkalkulation wie Excel, aber auch mehr Spielraum als mit gangiger Statistiksoftware wie SPSS und SAS. Anders als bei diesen Programmen hat man namlich direkten Zugriff auf dieselbe, vollwertige Programmiersprache, mit der die fertigen Analyse- und Visualisierungsmethoden realisiert sind - so lassen sich nahtlos eigene Algorithmen integrieren und komplexe Arbeitsablaufe realisieren. Und nicht zuletzt, weil R offen gegenuber beliebigen Datenquellen ist, von der einfachen Textdatei uber binare Fremdformate bis hin zu den ganz groen relationalen Datenbanken. Zudem ist R Open Source und erobert momentan von der universitaren Welt aus die professionelle Statistik. R kann viel. Und Sie konnen viel mit R machen - wenn Sie wissen, wie es geht. Willkommen in der R-Welt: Installieren Sie R und stobern Sie in Ihrem gut bestuckten Werkzeugkasten: Sie haben eine Konsole und eine grafische Benutzeroberflache, unzahlige vordefinierte Analyse- und Visualisierungsoperationen - und Pakete, Pakete, Pakete. Fur quasi jeden statistischen Anwendungsbereich konnen Sie sich aus dem reichen Schatz der R-Community bedienen. Sprechen Sie R! Sie mussen Syntax und Grammatik von R nicht lernen - wie im Auslandsurlaub kommen Sie auch hier gut mit ein paar aufgeschnappten Brocken aus. Aber es lohnt sich: Wenn Sie wissen, was es mit R-Objekten auf sich hat, wie Sie eigene Funktionen schreiben und Ihre eigenen Pakete schnuren, sind Sie bei der Analyse Ihrer Daten noch flexibler und effektiver. Datenanalyse und Statistik in der Praxis: Anhand unzahliger Beispiele aus Medizin, Wirtschaft, Sport und Bioinformatik lernen Sie, wie Sie Daten aufbereiten, mithilfe der Grafikfunktionen des lattice-Pakets darstellen, statistische Tests durchfuhren und Modelle anpassen. Danach werden Ihnen Ihre Daten nichts mehr verheimlichen.

This book offers Python programmers one place to look when they needhelp remembering or deciphering the syntax of this open source languageand its many powerful but scantily documented modules. Thiscomprehensive reference guide makes it easy to look up the mostfrequently needed information--not just about the Python languageitself, but also the most frequently used parts of the standard libraryand the most important third-party extensions. Ask any Python aficionado and you'll hear that Python programmers haveit all: an elegant object-oriented language with readable andmaintainable syntax, that allows for easy integration with componentsin C, C++, Java, or C#, and an enormous collection of precoded standardlibrary and third-party extension modules. Moreover, Python is easy tolearn, yet powerful enough to take on the most ambitious programmingchallenges. But what Python programmers used to lack is a concise andclear reference resource, with the appropriate measure of guidance inhow best to use Python's great power. Python in aNutshell fills this need. Python in a Nutshell, Second Edition covers morethan the language itself; it also deals with the mostfrequently used parts of the standard library, and the most popular andimportant third party extensions. Revised and expanded forPython 2.5, this book now contains the gory details of Python's newsubprocess module and breaking news about Microsoft's newIronPython project. Our "Nutshell" format fits Python perfectly bypresenting the highlights of the most important modules and functionsin its standard library, which cover over 90% of your practicalprogramming needs. This book includes: A fast-paced tutorial on the syntax of the Python language An explanation of object-oriented programming in Python Coverage of iterators, generators, exceptions, modules,packages, strings, and regular expressions A quick reference for Python's built-in types and functionsand key modules Reference material on important third-party extensions,such as Numeric and Tkinter Information about extending and embedding Python Python in a Nutshell provides a solid,no-nonsense quick reference to information that programmers rely on themost. This book will immediately earn its place in any Pythonprogrammer's library. Praise for the First Edition: "In a nutshell, Python in a Nutshell serves oneprimary goal: to act as an immediately accessible goal for the Pythonlanguage. True, you can get most of the same core information that ispresented within the covers of this volume online, but this willinvariably be broken into multiple files, and in all likelihood lackingthe examples or the exact syntax description necessary to trulyunderstand a command." --Richard Cobbett, Linux Format "O'Reilly has several good books, of which Python in aNutshell by Alex Martelli is probably the best for giving yousome idea of what Python is about and how to do useful things with it." --Jerry Pournelle, Byte Magazine

" Inprise/Borland's Delphi " may be the best Windows Rapid Application Development tool currently available. It offers full support for COM and ActiveX, an object-oriented widget library called the Visual Component Library, and an extensible and customizable rapid application development environment. Delphi in a Nutshell is the comprehensive reference to the programming language for this powerful RAD development tool. "Delphi in a Nutshell" begins with an introduction to Delphi Pascal and a clear discussion of the Delphi object model. It then covers RTTI, the key to Delphi's development environment, which is often poorly documented in other sources such as Delphi's official help files. The book also includes a chapter on concurrent programming in Delphi and the creation of multithreaded applications. The bulk of the book is a complete ordered reference to the Delphi language set. Each reference item includes : the syntax, using standard code conventions. A description. A list of arguments, if any, accepted by the function or procedure. Tips and tricks of usage-practical information on using the language feature in real programs. A brief example. A cross-reference to related keywords. Regardless of how much experience you have with Delphi, this is the book you'll pick up again and again as your standard reference. you'll also use it to master the finer points of the language and to troubleshoot problems.

Year 2000 in a Nutshell

In the past when code was tight and memory scarce, it was standard practice to use two-digit storage (for example 68 for the year 1968) for date code within software. Unfortunately, when the clock rolls over at midnight on the last day of December 1999, many computers won't recognize "00" as the correct date. This Year 2000 (Y2K) dilemma may potentially render many applications and hardware ineffective, unless the code is altered. This is a global problem that will affect everybody and must be seriously addressed since time is a crucial factor. The Year 2000 situation affects the mainframe environment most heavily, but it can affect PCs as well. Any company that is running older software and hardware must pay attention to revising date code in programs, and possibly even updating software, the operating system, and even hardware. Other areas of concern are the millions of access-control, point of sale, process-control, and other peripherals that utilize date-stamping and grouping functions embedded in firmware. Year 2000 in a Nutshelladdresses three main aspects of the Year 2000 dilemma: Awareness. Covers main issues such as: compliance, costs, event-horizons, embedded dates and systems, date-stamping, timing, staffing, and benefits of Y2K conversion. Managerial. Covers considerations such as: triage (when the Y2K conversion process isn't started soon enough), legal issues, budgets, and standards. Also covers a project-plan: inventory, analysis, logistical estimates, planning and strategies, conversion, and testing and implementation. Technical. Covers: dates, Julian day, windowing, single-digit century, file and database date conversion, and PC issues. In addition, this book provides reference information on the date and time functions in those languages most likely to be affected by Year 2000 problems, including Cobol, PL/1, and Visual Basic. This section will be valuable for those programmers forced to dredge up old skills to analyze or revise code that may not be Year 2000 compliant. Because Cobol is particularly likely to be a problem, the book provides a complete Cobol quick reference. This is a valuable guide for those programmers who have been assigned the task of making the Cobol code Y2K compliant, but haven't had much experience with the Cobol language. The book also provides Visual Basic source code for a simple scanner designed to look for date and time functions that need to be altered for Y2K compliance. Although the code is written in Visual Basic, it can easily be converted into other languages. Whether you are a manager, a programmer, or even a user faced with the Year-2000 date compliance issue, this is an essential book that will help guide you through this crisis.

Written by experts on the Microsoft® .NET programming platform,ADO.NET in a Nutshelldelivers everything .NET programmers will need to get a jump-start on ADO.NET technology or to sharpen their skills even further. In the tradition of O'Reilly's In a Nutshell Series,ADO.NET in a Nutshellis the most complete and concise source of ADO.NET information available. ADO.NET is the suite of data access technologies in the .NET Framework that developers use to build applications services accessing relational data and XML. Connecting to databases is a fundamental part of most applications, whether they are web, Windows®, distributed, client/server, XML Web Services, or something entirely different. But ADO.NET is substantially different from Microsoft's previous data access technologies--including the previous version of ADO--so even experienced developers need to understand the basics of the new disconnected model before they start programming with it. Current with the .NET Framework 1.1,ADO.NET in a Nutshelloffers one place to look when you need help with anything related to this essential technology, including a reference to the ADO.NET namespaces and object model. In addition to being a valuable reference, this book provides a concise foundation for programming with ADO.NET and covers a variety of issues that programmers face when developing web applications or Web Services that rely on database access. Using C#, this book presents real world, practical examples that will help you put ADO.NET to work immediately. Topics covered in the book include: An Introduction to ADO.NET Connections, Commands and DataReaders Disconnected Data Advanced DataSets Transactions DataViews and Data Binding XML and the DataSet Included with the book is a Visual Studio .NET add-in that integrates the entire reference directly into your help files. When combiningADO.NET in a Nutshellwith other books from O'Reilly's .NET In a Nutshell series, you'll have a comprehensive, detailed and independent reference collection that will help you become more productive.
