StatET 4.4 – New and Noteworthy

For other information about the release see the release page for StatET 4.4.0.

R Editor

Forward Pipe Operator A forward pipe operator was added to the R language 4.1 and is supported by the R parsers and tools in StatET now. Above all it appears in the code syntax highlighting and validation in the R editor and console:

A new editor template for the pipe operator allows to insert it by a keyboard shortcut, the default binding is Ctrl+5.

Shorthand Notation for Function Definitions The R language 4.1 also provides a new shorthand notation for function definition using a backslash. The R parsers and tools in StatET support the new syntax too:

Quick Assist – Convert to Forward Pipe A new quick assist quickly converts a classic function call to the new forward pipe operator.

Key Bindings for Quick Assists The new commands for the quick assists Rename in File and Convert to Forward Pipe (see above) allows direct access to these actions by customizable keyboard shortcuts too.

Support for Replacement Function The support for replacement functions has been improved, so that all occurrences are correctly linked together now. Also the quick assists to rename the occurrences in the file or code chunk take into account the special naming rules:
