emisc is a collection of miscellaneous functions that I have made that may or may not be useful, and that may or may not duplicate existing work.


case_styles - Convert variable names into one of three styles.

change_case - Changing variable cases.

dateable - A function that locates all variables with “date” in the name (ignoring case), and converts them to POSIXct. Works on both dates and datetimes.

latex_markup - Add LaTeX markup to variables.

strip_bom - A function to strip Byte Order Marks (BOM) out of JSON data that is returned from some online API calls.

tidy_bom - Internal Byte Order Mark stripper for strip_bom

tidy_variables - Strip out most non-alphanumeric characters from variables

write_latex - Write variables to a LaTeX file in rows.
