GNU R html docs for statistical computing system functions

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.

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.

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.

Additionally, over thousand extension "packages" are available from CRAN, the Comprehensive R Archive Network, many also as Debian packages, named 'r-cran-<name>'.

This package provides html documentation suitable for browsing with a web-browser for the libraries included in the r-base package. It is not a required package as the same documentation is already included for on-line browsing.

This is the Debian GNU/Linux r-base package of the GNU R system for
statistical computing and graphics.

R has a home page at `'.  It is free software
distributed under a GNU-style copyleft, and an official part of the GNU
project ("GNU S").

This package was initially debianized by Douglas Bates on
Wed, 10 Dec 1997 14:17:31 -0600.
