R

A new version of R is now available:

  • Accumulating vectors in a loop is faster – Assigning to an element of a vector beyond the current length now over-allocates by a small fraction. The new vector is marked internally as growable, and the true length of the new vector is stored in the truelength field. This makes building up a vector result by assigning to the next element beyond the current length more efficient, though pre-allocating is still preferred. The implementation is subject to change and not intended to be used in packages at this time.

There’s a big list of changes, so check it out and think about upgrading.

Dave Mason tries to get around his RESULT SETS limitation when using SQL Server Machine Learning Services: The columns in the data frame clearly have names, but SQL Server isn’t using them. The data frame columns have types in R too (more on this in a moment). Now that makes me wonder about the data […]

Dave Mason covers a pain point in SQL Server Machine Learning Services: The example above is so simple, defining the RESULT SETS poses no problems. But what if the format of the output isn’t known at design time? R (or Python) might take the input data set and add, remove, or change columns conditionally. Further, […]
