Presentation-Quality Tables, Displayed Using 'ggplot2'

Presentation-quality tables are displayed as plots on an R graphics device. Although there are other packages that format tables for display, this package is unique in combining two features: (a) It is aware of the logical structure of the table being presented, and makes use of that for automatic layout and styling of the table. This avoids the need for most manual adjustments to achieve an attractive result. (b) It displays tables using 'ggplot2' graphics. Therefore a table can be presented anywhere a graph could be, with no more effort. External software such as LaTeX or HTML or their viewers is not required. The package provides a full set of tools to control the style and appearance of tables, including titles, footnotes and reference marks, horizontal and vertical rules, and spacing of rows and columns. Methods are included to display data frames; tables created by R's ftable(), table(), and xtabs() functions; and tables created by the 'tables' and 'xtable' packages. Methods can be added to display other table-like objects. A vignette is included that illustrates usage and options available in the package.
