Learning R in Kaggle

I’m learning data analysis and explore in R following the tutorial posted in Kaggle

Here are some sentences I found it useful.

train <- read.csv('../input/train.csv', stringsAsFactors = F)

This is how to read csv files. Also, use read.delim(), read.delim2() to read txt file.read documentation

stringAsFactors is a useful factor. Here we do not want to use the headers as factors.

str(dataframe) use this to check data. Also if you use R Studio, use view(dataframe) to check data.

To check dataframe, we can also use tbl_df function.

full_df <- tbl_df(full)
