What's the best way to format a numeric so that it does NOT show leading zero. For example:
test = .006
sprintf/format/formatC( ??? ) # should result in ".006"
You can always fix it up yourself with regular expression search-and-replace:
library(stringr) test = .006 str_replace(as.character(test), "^0\\.", ".")
Not the most elegant answer, but it works. Substitute whatever string conversion you like for
as.character, such as
sprintf with your preferred floating point format.
