Resources for S4 classes and methods

January 23, 2008

Learning the programming in the new S4 system of classes and methods in R can be quite cumbersome, even though the methods package is very well documented. That is why I collected some of the info and materials that I am aware of on a separate page here. I warmly welcome any suggestions for extending this, for now short, collection!

Where to look for information on programming with S4 system of classes and methods for R? Here is a open-ended collection of links to resources on learning programming in S4 system. Suggestions more than welcome!
