 R is a language and environment for statistical computing and
graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and
environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T,
now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues. R can be
considered as a different implementation of S. There are some
important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered
under R.

R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear
modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis,
classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is
highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for
research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source
route to participation in that activity.

One of R's strengths is the ease with which well-designed
publication-quality plots can be produced, including mathematical
symbols and formulae where needed. Great care has been taken over the
defaults for the minor design choices in graphics, but the user
retains full control.

R is available as Free Software under the terms of the Free Software
Foundation's GNU General Public License in source code form. It
compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms and similar
systems (including FreeBSD and Linux), Windows and MacOS.
