R The Programming Language for Statistics

R is a programming language and environment designed for delivering computations, specifically for statistical computing and graphics. The statistical programming language is comparable to what John Chambers and his colleagues from Bell Laboratories have previously created: the S Language. R is somehow similar to S with different implementations since it has similar codes. This statistical programming language is utilized for highly extensive statistical and graphical formulas. It processes formulas such as classical statistical tests, classification clustering, linear and nonlinear modeling and time-series analysis. The only difference of R from S is that R is an open source GNU project ready for editing and sharing. It has optimal mathematical plots ready to be produced. Mathematical symbols and formulas are included for the production. R is recognized for full control with optimized graphics.

Modernized Language Editor and Word Processor 

Tinn-R Editor is an open source project developed out of ASCII/UNICODE standards integrated for the R Language. It possesses the properties of the Graphical User Interface (GUI), as well as the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The language editor provides several language editor tools. It supports executable R Files like Rgui.exe and Rterm.exe, as well as R packages RNOWEB with Knitr and Sweave documents. This language editor has Object Explorer feature with a graphical user interface for R. The Object Explorer is designed with filter and selection options for easy visual references. Users are given options for sending their instructions along with options blocks, file, lines and selection. They can also control the R Interpreter for easier editing with the R tool. The language editor is built with convenient editing tools like coloring for the syntaxes, macro support and completion feature. The Completion feature is based on the XML database with customizable and expandable properties. The language editor is capable of supporting any LaTeX document, format conversion for Deplate, Pandoc, and Txt2tags, multiple languages spell check, and files/folders search and substitution. Users are also presented with an intuitive interface for delivering any kind of project content management.
