    2 R is a language which bears a passing resemblance to the S language
    3 developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories.  It provides support for a variety
    4 of statistical and graphical analyses.  R is a true computer language
    5 which contains a number of control-flow constructions for iteration and
    6 alternation.  It allows users to add additional functionality by
    7 defining new functions.

    9 On systems which have the GNU \fBreadline\fP(3) library, R will maintain
   10 a command history, so that commands can be recalled, edited and
   11 re-executed.

   15 Most options control what happens at the beginning and at the end of an

   17 much memory is reserved for the R process.
