Can anybody tell me what's going on here? Everything I've read says to use "\N" for both STRINGs and non-STRINGs, but Hive is treating them differently. WTF?

Is there something in Ruby (in an existing gem?) that will take an HTML String, parse out a form, and return URI-encoded query string of the fields/values a la jQuery's form.serialize?

Intro to R Tutorial


This is a step-by-step tutorial for getting started with R, a powerful programming language for data analysis and visualization. It is aimed at near complete beginners. You'll basically want to be comfortable with spreadsheets and with using your computer's command line.

I slapped this together quickly, so expect some weirdness. Feel free to email me with comments or questions at jpvelez | at |

I learned the following stuff using the UCLA Statistic's Department great R tutorials, so check those out:
