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.
