How to create a simple R package based on the so-called S3 classes

About the Book

In this book you will learn how to create a relatively simple R package based on the so-called S3 classes. The first part involves describing a motivating example about using R to write code for tossing a coin. The second part is dedicated to implement code in a more object-oriented programming fashion by using S3-class objects. The third part discusses the anatomy of an R package. And the fourth part of the book has to do with the actual process of building a package.
