Summary: A language for data analysis and graphics
R is `GNU S' - A language and environment for statistical computing
and graphics. R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was
developed at Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a
wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
classification, clustering, ...).
R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
constructions for iteration and alternation, and it allows users to
add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be
linked and called at run time.
S is the statistician's Matlab and R is to S what Octave is to Matlab.
List of contributors:
- Provided compatibility symlink for R-studio.
- Version 3.5.0
- change meta-package name to R-full since #34737 is still unresolved
- add dependencies on gcc-fortran, gcc-c++, liblapack-devel to R-full
to make installation of R packages easier for less profcient users
(these are the most common tools required to build R packages that are
commonly missing in a user's system by default).
- Version 3.4.4
- Add meta-package R that installs all major components
(R-base, R-devel, R-tcltk)
- Rebuilt with texlive-2017
