CRAN task views aim to provide guidance which packages on CRAN
are relevant for tasks related to a certain topic. They give a brief overview of the included packages
which can also be automatically installed using the ctv
package. The views are intended to have a sharp focus so that it is sufficiently
clear which packages should be included (or excluded) - and they are *not* meant
to endorse the "best" packages for a given task.

To automatically install the views, the ctv package needs to be installed, e.g., via

`install.packages("ctv")`

and then the views can be installed via `install.views`

or `update.views`

(where the latter only installs those packages are not installed and up-to-date), e.g.,

`ctv::install.views("Econometrics")`

`ctv::update.views("Econometrics")`

To query information about a particular task view on CRAN from within R or to obtain the list of all task views available, respectively,
the following commands are provided:

`ctv::ctv("Econometrics")`

`ctv::available.views()`

The resources available from the CRAN Task View Initiative provide further information on how to contribute to existing task views and how to propose new task views.
