what do you guys think of creating a R-wiki page for syntax comparisons among the various options to enhance R use?

I already have two sugestions:

  1. syntax examples for using R and other tools to manipulate and analyze large datasets (with a concise description of the datasets);
  2. syntax examples for using R and other tools (or R alone) to clean and prepare datasets (simple and very small datasets, for didatic purposes).

I think this could be interesting for R users and to promote other software tools, since it seems there is a lot of R users that use other tools also.

Besides that, questions on those two above subjects are prevalent at this list. Thus a wiki page seems to be the right place to discuss and teach this to other users.

What do you think?

Rogerio
