Follow-up Comment #5, task #10258 (project administration):
Thanks Mario. I updated the description and only mention free software as
per your instruction earlier. About the code in Reserving.Rnw, I guess most
of it is formatting code, but I was considering formatting to be code and not
text. For instance, here's a typical "code" snippet:
----------------
capecod.paid.fdf <- CapeCod(Latest(paid.devel.df), LDF.paid.selected.ult,
premium.fdf)
FieldHeadings(capecod.paid.fdf)$origin <- origin.field.heading
Caption(capecod.paid.fdf) <- "Cape Cod Loss Ratio Selection: Paid Loss"
Label(capecod.paid.fdf) <- "capecod paid 1"
capecod.paid.selected.lr <- (sum(capecod.paid.fdf[["value"]]) /
sum(capecod.paid.fdf[["used.premium"]]))
SummaryRow(capecod.paid.fdf) <- list(origin="Total",
value=sum(capecod.paid.fdf$value),
premium=sum(capecod.paid.fdf$premium),
used.premium=sum(capecod.paid.fdf$used.premium),
exp.ratio=capecod.paid.selected.lr)
print(capecod.paid.fdf)
---------------
It's true that what this code does is just make a table full of numbers, so
it's all formatting in that sense (except for the initial call to CapeCod I
suppose). However, it's not English text (except for the caption)---you have
to execute this code in R to produce the table.
I guess there is somewhat of a gray line between code that produces a
document and the actual document. For instance, HTML (w/o javascript) and
most LaTeX I would call (marked-up) text, but I would call the above code.
Maybe a useful criterion is whether a non-programmer can understand it. If
they can, it's text; if not, it's code?
Anyway thanks for the approval, and I am still interested in using Savannah.
