plyr (1.8.1)
Tools for splitting, applying and combining data.

plyr is a set of tools that solves a common set of problems: you need to break a big problem down into manageable pieces, operate on each pieces and then put all the pieces back together. For example, you might want to fit a model to each spatial location or time point in your study, summarise data by panels or collapse highdimensional arrays to simpler summary statistics. The development of plyr has been generously supported by BD (Becton Dickinson).

Incredibly useful!
The possibility to easily subset dataframes while calculating all sorts of summaries saves lot's of time and trouble.
