R Project

Iris flower data from Edgar Anderson

The R Project provides the R ‘statistical environment’ – a command driven statistical calculator with considerable graphics capability and plenty of routines. The ‘commands’ are actually part of a full programming language for doing statistics so entire applications can be built within the environment.

The R software is Open Source (capital OS) and pre-compiled binaries can be downloaded for Mac OS X, Windows and various flavours of Linux. I have downloaded all 40Mb of the Mac OS .dmg version so I can create some effective graphs and charts.
