R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. R provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible.

One of R’s strengths is the ease with which well-designed publication-quality plots can be produced, including mathematical symbols and formulas where needed. Great care has been taken over the defaults for the minor design choices in graphics, but the user retains full control.

RStudio is an integrated development environment for R. It includes a console, syntax-highlighting editor that supports direct code execution, as well as tools for plotting, history, debugging and workspace management.


R usage

R is available by default on Bridges-2. Type R --help for options and more information.
