S is a high level language for manipulating, analysing and displaying data It forms the basis of two highly acclaimed and widely used data analysis software systems, the commercial S PLUS R and the Open Source R This book provides an in depth guide to writing software in the S language under either or both of those systems It is intended for readers who have some acquaS is a high level language for manipulating, analysing and displaying data It forms the basis of two highly acclaimed and widely used data analysis software systems, the commercial S PLUS R and the Open Source R This book provides an in depth guide to writing software in the S language under either or both of those systems It is intended for readers who have some acquaintance with S language and want to know how to use it effectively, for example to build re usable tools for streamlining routine data analysis or to implement new statistical methods One ofhe most outstanding strengths of the S language is the ease with which it can be extended by users S is a functional language, and functions written by users are first class objects treated in the same way as functions provided by the system S code is eminently readable and so a good way to document precisely what algorithms were used, and as much of the implementations are themselves written in S, they can be studied as models and to understand their subtleties The current implementations also provide easy ways for S functions to call compiled code written in C, Fortran and similar languages this is documented here in depth Increasingly S is being used for statistical or graphical analysis within larger software systems or for whole vertical market applications The interface facilities are most developed on Windows R and these are covered with worked examples The authors have written the widely adopted Modern Applied Statistics with S PLUS , now in its third edition, and several software libraries that enhance S PLUS and R these and the examples used in both books are available on the Internet Dr W.N Venables is a senior Statistician with the CSIRO CMIS Environmentrics Project in Autralia, having been at the Department of Statistics, University of Adelaide for many years previously Professor B.D Ripley holds the Chair of Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford, and is the author of four other books on spatial statistics, simulation, pattern recognition and neural networks Both authors are known and respected thorughout the international S and R communities, for their books, workshops, short courses, freely available software and through their extensive contributions to the S news and R mailing lists.

If you already know about R (the free implementation of S and S+), then sooner or later you're probably going to want this book. It doesn't tell you how to create incredible graphs or perform large-scale statistical analysis. What it does do is concisely outline the language you'll be using to do these things. R is an early example of an object-oriented language and will be very unfamiliar to anyone coming from C++, Python, or Java (or C, for that matter). It's very much the K&R of the R wor [...]
