R programming language
The R programming language
, sometimes described as "GNU
S", is a mathematical language and environment used for statistical analysis and display.
It is based upon S which was developed by John Chambers of Bell Laboratories and described in the paper "Evolution of the S Language" . R is considered by its developers to be an implementation of S, with semantics derived from Scheme.
R is freely available under the GNU GPL and is available for Windows, Macintosh, and many Unix operating systems.
