Hi,
I'm relatively new to R, so I don't know the full list of base (or popular add-on packages) functions and tools available. For example, I tripped across mention of rle() in a message about some other problem. rle() turned out to be a handy shortcut to splitting some of my data by magnitude (vaguely like a sequence-based histogram). So I thought I'd ask: what small, or obscure, tools and functions in R do you find handy or 'cool' to use in your work?

Thanks
Carl
