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
15 Most options control what happens at the beginning and at the end of an
16 R session, in particular which files are being read and written, and how
17 much memory is reserved for the R process.

22 manuals and individual help for R objects which is also available
25 Start R and type \fB?\fP\fItopic\fP at the R prompt to obtain on-line
