Clear the RStudio environment window

Free up memory for RStudio

There is a great function from the R base package called gc().

It is also possible to customize the RStudio startup and add it to your RProfile as an additional function in the base package. It looks like this.

	function(...) {
	rm(list = ls(envir = globalenv()), envir = globalenv())
, "base")

For more detailed instructions on how to do it in your file go here.

As a result, you can call that function and clear RStudio panes with code any time you need a little cleanup.

Remember to add an additional free line at the end of your Rprofile. Reason here.
