Working on Functional Data Structures in R

I’ve gotten started on the next chapter in my Functional Data Structures in R book.

I’ve spent a lot of time playing around with lazy queues, but now I get to heaps. I have already implemented a little there, you can see it in my ralgo package. But there are a lot of data structures I still want to implement for the next chapter.

I think I will also abandon the idea of making a Kindle version of this book. I simply need too much math in it, and the Kindle format doesn’t format it correctly. So, I might only sell it as a PDF or a paperback. If I can sell it to Apress, I will do that. Otherwise, I will look for another publisher.

I don’t think there is anything else on the marked about data structures in R, and I think there should be, so I am having a lot of fun with this book.
