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 more...

What's New

Version 3.1.0:

New Features:

  • type.convert() (and hence by default read.table()) returns a character vector or factor when representing a numeric input as a double would lose accuracy. Similarly for complex inputs.
  • If a file contains numeric data with unrepresentable numbers of decimal places that are intended to be read as numeric, specify colClasses in read.table() to more...

Requirements

  • OS X 10.6 or later
  • X11 system manager (optional)
  • GNU g77 compiler and tcltk libraries included with the installer

R has revolutionized statistical computing over the last 10 years. Every student of statistics or science today probably needs to learn R. It can be used for amazingly complex analysis, as well as the simple stuff. It has a reputation for being hard to learn, but that's mainly because it's so powerful and flexible. Fortunately there are many good books available to teach R. I like "Introductory Statistics with R," by Peter Dalgaard.

R is the tool for choice for serious statistical analysis. It's not an easy platform, however, and learning takes some time. The good side is how powerful it is for *any* type of analysis, data, or problem. The help support is very good and user forums are very active and helpful. This is not the package of choice if you are doing sporadic data analysis, but I'd recommend it to anyone seriously involved in statistical analysis. If you are just starting with statistics and plan to keep doing data analysis- go for it. If you are using other packages and statistical analysis is a major part of your study, go for it. No other package offers the versatility and support R has. If the command line mode is really intimidating to you, you can use the R-Commander GUI (just install the Rcmdr package), but the real power of R lies in its command-line. You can run R with the binary cocoa application, from the Terminal, within emacs, or within TextMate.

Top-notch statistical analysis software for an unbeatable price. You do have to invest some time to learn how to work it, but that's well worth the price of admission. Many statistical tools become available on this platform way before others (much more costly ones). It is supported by a wide, global user and programmer base. Get yourself a book to learn how to use it if you are not the adventurous or "I'd rather do this with a command-line" type.

I downloaded the package, ran the installer and after starting R, the app remains in 'loading R' status interminably. I have to 'force quit' R to get out of it.

I'm running a 20" G5 iMac with OSX10.4.6

Any idea of what the problem is?

I rebooted my Mac and R starts up quickly. But the text screen shows several repetitions of:

Error loading /Library/QuickTime/DivX 6 Decoder.component/Contents/MacOS/DivX 6 Decoder:...

A significant upgrade. The interface is now a lot less baffling. The most immediately-visible changes affect the ease with which you can see what is in your workspace and how easily you can access help files.
R is powerful, but has hitherto been daunting in its minimalist interface. This is still a package for the professional, but is now going to be a lot easier to get to grips with.

One of the most robust and powerful statistical package that just happens to be free, as well. Most of its power comes from command line interface, but the object browsers can't hurt. Is it just me or it tends to run a lot faster when run directly from terminal app?
