(These posts were useful to me at one point, but are no longer the way I do things. For example, I now use doctest rather than GoogleTest for C++. Still, these posts may be useful to somebody out there...)
What is this?
Several months after making my first R package, I started to make another. The only problem was — I could not remember the procedure, and so had to spend some time learning the process all over again. The same thing happened when I recently returned to using Vim. After seeing Still Alice, I was inspired to make some short tutorials to help me remember how to do some of these (random) things.
After a friend of mine asked me a couple of questions about Vim and Rcpp, I decided to expand my personal tutorials and put them up here, and perhaps someone else will find them useful. Also, it makes it easy for me to look up the things I have trouble remembering. Although all the posts (in some way) are related to making statistical software, they are only really concerned with the programming side of things — hence the name 'statistically irrelevant'.
Almost everything on here comes from Stackoverflow posts and tips from others' websites; I've tried to give references to the original sources where possible. This website is my attempt to collect all the useful tutorials/instructions that I have come across in one place.
