There are so many functions in R

Hi there,

There are so many functions in R, is there a way to check on R studio what each function requires to be captured? For example, in excel, when I’m using each function, they tell me what inputs are required. It’s a good reference tool when I forget what the function requires.



By pressing Tab will give you hints after function name in Rstudio and F1 for more help.

Is this are you looking for?

Hi @lauratangwt, RStudio offers some great help features for packages and functions. It’s covered in detail in this recent Dataquest blog post.
