Approximate String Matching and String Distance Functions

Implements an approximate string matching version of R's native 'match' function. Can calculate various string distances based on edits (Damerau-Levenshtein, Hamming, Levenshtein, optimal sting alignment), qgrams (q- gram, cosine, jaccard distance) or heuristic metrics (Jaro, Jaro-Winkler). An implementation of soundex is provided as well. Distances can be computed between character vectors while taking proper care of encoding or between integer vectors representing generic sequences. This package is built for speed and runs in parallel by using 'openMP'. An API for C or C++ is exposed as well.

Gower's Distance

Compute Gower's distance (or similarity) coefficient between records. Compute the top-n matches between records. Core algorithms are executed in parallel on systems supporting OpenMP.

Data Validation Infrastructure

Declare data validation rules and data quality indicators; confront data with them and analyze or visualize the results. The package supports rules that are per-field, in-record, cross-record or cross-dataset. Rules can be automatically analyzed for rule type and connectivity.

Software Option Settings Manager for R

Provides option settings management that goes beyond R's default 'options' function. With this package, users can define their own option settings manager holding option names, default values and (if so desired) ranges or sets of allowed option values that will be automatically checked. Settings can then be retrieved, altered and reset to defaults with ease. For R programmers and package developers it offers cloning and merging functionality which allows for conveniently defining global and local options, possibly in a multilevel options hierarchy. See the package vignette for some examples concerning functions, S4 classes, and reference classes. There are convenience functions to reset par() and options() to their 'factory defaults'.

Track Changes in Data

A function composition ('pipe') operator and extensible framework that allows for easy logging of changes in data.

Manipulation of Linear Systems of (in)Equalities

Variable elimination (Gaussian elimination, Fourier-Motzkin elimination), Moore-Penrose pseudoinverse, reduction to reduced row echelon form, value substitution, projecting a vector on the convex polytope described by a system of (in)equations, simplify systems by removing spurious columns and rows and collapse implied equalities, test if a matrix is totally unimodular, compute variable ranges implied by linear (in)equalities.

Univariate Outlier Detection

Detect outliers in one-dimensional data.

Simple Imputation

Easy to use interfaces to a number of imputation methods that fit in the not-a-pipe operator of the 'magrittr' package.

Adapt Numerical Records to Fit (in)Equality Restrictions

Minimally adjust the values of numerical records in a data.frame, such that each record satisfies a predefined set of equality and/or inequality constraints. The constraints can be defined using the 'validate' package. The core algorithms have recently been moved to the 'lintools' package, refer to 'lintools' for a more basic interface and access to a version of the algorithm that works with sparse matrices.

Hash R Objects to Integers Fast

Apply the SuperFastHash algorithm to any R object. Hash whole R objects or, for vectors or lists, hash R objects to obtain a set of hash values that is stored in a structure equivalent to the input.
