Hi guys, I'm hoping one of you will have the experience and knowledge to help me. I'm new to Linux AND new to R. I'm taking a statistical computing course this semester and figured I'd take the opportunity to learn both at the same time. Here's where I'm having trouble. I have the installed the latest version of ubuntu (10.04 amd64) on my laptop. I've went to the R project website and followed their instructions to install R.
R is an open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It consists of a language together with a run-time environment with a debugger, graphics, access to system functions, and scripting. The R language is extremely popular for developing statistical software, and is also frequently used as an analysis tool amongst data miners.
