I have problems with very large numbers using knitr. In the following, my a and b are extremely small and ssrr and ssru are extremely large. Knitr delivers error messages. Scaling ssrr and ssru by 1000 resolved the problem:
ssrr <-ssrr/1000 ; ssru<-ssru/1000 Any clue as to how I might resolve the problem? BTW, the same program does run in another computer. I am wondering whether my installation of Scientific Work place interferes, and if so, what else I might do to avoid the problem. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} <<setup, echo=FALSE, cache=FALSE>>= ## numbers >= 10^5 will be denoted in scientific notation, ## and rounded to 2 digits options(scipen = 1, digits = 2) <<>>= a<-1e-13 b<-2.5e-10 ssrr<-123456.12 ssru<-123400.00 @ $ c=\Sexpr{a}/\Sexpr{b} % either this formula or the following formula will has error message "missing $" after click "complie" in Rstudio. f=\Sexpr{ssrr-ssru}/\Sexpr{ssru} $ \end{document} |
(The same question was cross-posted in the knitr mailing list, so cc'ed as well)
According to the other email from Steven, this problem was solved by reinstalling R. I cannot reproduce the problem under either Ubuntu or Windows (regardless of 32-bit or 64-bit R), so I have no idea of what happened. All I can suggest in this case is to update R and run update.packages() as indicated by FAQ1: https://github.com/yihui/knitr/blob/master/FAQ.md Regards, Yihui -- Yihui Xie <[hidden email]> Phone: 515-294-2465 Web: http://yihui.name Department of Statistics, Iowa State University 2215 Snedecor Hall, Ames, IA On Wed, Dec 26, 2012 at 6:28 PM, xiaodao <[hidden email]> wrote: > I have problems with very large numbers using knitr.

You can convert your numbers to strings with as.character() Alternative: if you run knit_hooks$get("inline") you get the function used for inline output procession https://github.com/yihui/knitr/issues/33 -> if you write knit_hooks$set()$inline function (x) { if (is.numeric(x)) x = round(x, getOption("digits")) paste(as.character(x), collapse = ", ") } in your setup chunk (did you forget the closing @ in your setup chunk?), it also works. (which is strange, because this function is exactly what is predefinded by knitr but that's another question Regards, Moritz -- GnuPG Key: 0x7340821E ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help PLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code. |
