HexSimR

An R package for Post HexSim Simulation Analysis.

Using this package, data of population viability analysis (PVA) that were generated with the software HexSim (Schumaker N, HexSim (Version 3 & 4). US Environmental Protection Agency. Environmental Research Laboratory, Corvallis, Oregon. http://www.epa.gov/hexsim), can be collated, plotted and analysed.

Quickstart

Install the package from version control from within R:

library(devtools)
install_github("carlopacioni/HexSimR")

If you are on Windows and have not used devtools before, then you have to download the Rtools executable file from CRAN webpage and run it. devtools can be installed from within R with

install.packages("devtools")

NOTE (August 2016) At the time of writing, the current official release of devtools (1.12.0) has an issue with R 3.3.1 on windows, which results in the dependencies of the package not being installed. This problem is resolved in the dev version. If you have problems installing HexSimR try the following (from devtools manual for the function build_github_devtools):

# Install devtools from CRAN if you haven't already
install.packages("devtools")

library(devtools)
build_github_devtools()

#### Restart R before continuing ####
install.packages("./devtools.zip", repos = NULL)

# Remove the package after installation
unlink("./devtools.zip")

library(devtools)
install_github("carlopacioni/HexSimR")

Use help(package = "HexSimR") to see the documentations available. For help on specific functions use ?function_name, where function_name is the name of the function you are seeking information for.

The manual and a short tutorial can also be downloaded as PDF.
