This is a very simple post. However, I think it might be really useful.
If you are an R user (like me), you have surely installed several packages while you were writing scripts to analize and plot data.

To update each package you should simply type the following command in an R console:
This command offers to download and install each package which have a suitable new version on the repositories.
that indicates packages which have a suitable later version on the repositories, and it can be run before running
update.packages() in order to check which packages you should update and:
that looks for suitable packages on the repositories that are not already installed, and optionally offers them for installation.
Happy R-programming, always up-to-date!
