Summary:
C: R software environment for statistical computing and graphics
Description:
C: >-
<p>R is a system for statistical computation and graphics. It consists of a language plus a run-time environment with
graphics, a debugger, access to certain system functions, and the ability to run programs stored in script files.</p>
<p>The design of R has been heavily influenced by two existing languages: Becker, Chambers & Wilks' S and Sussman's
Scheme. Whereas the resulting language is very similar in appearance to S, the underlying implementation and semantics
are derived from Scheme.</p>
<p>The core of R is an interpreted computer language which allows branching and looping as well as modular programming
using functions. Most of the user-visible functions in R are written in R. It is possible for the user to interface to
procedures written in the C, C++, or FORTRAN languages for efficiency, and many of R's core functions do so. The
R distribution contains functionality for a large number of statistical procedures and underlying applied math computations.
There is also a large set of functions which provide a flexible graphical environment for creating various kinds of data
presentations.</p>
<p>Additionally, several thousand extension "packages" are available from CRAN, the Comprehensive R Archive
Network, many also as Debian packages, named 'r-cran-<name>'.</p>
<p>This package provides the core GNU R system from which only the optional documentation packages r-base-html, r-doc-html,
r-doc-pdf and r-doc-info have been split off to somewhat reduce the size of this package.</p>
