Create a desktop shortcut (Windows only)
When R and mixsep are installed the makeShortcut-function in the mixsep-package can be used to create a shortcut on
the Windows desktop.
There are several reasons to do so:
Below is a screen short of the RGui after the mixsep-package is loaded and the makeShortcut-function is executed. Note that in
order to call library(mixsep) successfully
the package needs to be available (see the install guide for further details). If no
errors occur a shortcut icon to mixsep
(similar to the one below) is created on the Windows desktop.
- Makes it easier and faster to start the mixsep GUI.
- The performance of tcl/tk within R is improved when it is run outside the RGui.
- If the makeShortcut-function is given
a configuration file a database connection is readily available by
(see the database guide for further details).
