FIM4R is an extension module that makes several frequent item set mining (FIM) and association rule induction algorithms available as functions in R and also includes functions for generating a pattern spectrum with the help of surrogate data and FIM analysis, for estimating a pattern spectrum and for pattern set reduction.
This extension module was developed for R 3.6.3 and has been tested up to now only on Linux Mint 20. However, there is no reason why it should not work on Microsoft Windows as well, since no Linux-specific functions have been used.
How to use the different functions can be seen in the test
fim4r_test.R made available above (which is
also available in the source package). Package documentation
is currently a bit sparse, but what is available can be accessed
help(fim4r) in R, after loading this extension
To install this extension library, unpack the sources to a new
directory and call
R CMD INSTALL fim4r in this directory.
Note that you may need root or administrator rights for the
installation, as R may want to copy some files to its system

The use of pattern spectra to evaluate the statistical significance of found frequent item sets is explained in this paper:
