Package: r-base-core
Name:
  C: R
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 &amp; Wilks&apos; S and Sussman&apos;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&apos;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 &quot;packages&quot; are available from CRAN, the Comprehensive R Archive
    Network, many also as Debian packages, named &apos;r-cran-&lt;name&gt;&apos;.</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>
