上一篇文章提到過關於R這軟體這些年來在學術界的應用,以及大略簡介的付費軟體以及免費軟體間的落差,當然這也是這幾年來--『免費力量大』之下的產物,同時因為這個世代真的改變了,因為可以宅在家裡,因為有網路這個虛擬的世界,所以讓許多熱心人士找到一個共同發洩的平台,在這個平台上幾年來不斷的創造許多奇蹟,『維基百科』『Youtube』這兩件事情真的是網路奇機的代表,有其他更多的您絕對可以在網路上搜尋到!

而在談過R的簡介之後,我想也把R的環境進一步copy過來(從R的官網http://www.r-project.org/),讓朋友們有一個稍微完整的概念,

The R environment

R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display. It includes

  • an effective data handling and storage facility,
  • a suite of operators for calculations on arrays, in particular matrices,
  • a large, coherent, integrated collection of intermediate tools for data analysis,
  • graphical facilities for data analysis and display either on-screen or on hardcopy, and
  • a well-developed, simple and effective programming language which includes conditionals, loops, user-defined recursive functions and input and output facilities.

The term "environment" is intended to characterize it as a fully planned and coherent system, rather than an incremental accretion of very specific and inflexible tools, as is frequently the case with other data analysis software.

R, like S, is designed around a true computer language, and it allows users to add additional functionality by defining new functions. Much of the system is itself written in the R dialect of S, which makes it easy for users to follow the algorithmic choices made. For computationally-intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be linked and called at run time. Advanced users can write C code to manipulate R objects directly.

Many users think of R as a statistics system. We prefer to think of it of an environment within which statistical techniques are implemented. R can be extended (easily) via packages. There are about eight packages supplied with the R distribution and many more are available through the CRAN family of Internet sites covering a very wide range of modern statistics.

R has its own LaTeX-like documentation format, which is used to supply comprehensive documentation, both on-line in a number of formats and in hardcopy.

這兩年我們看到越來越多人在推廣自由軟體上的不遺餘力,也看到一些學校的教授出於對學生的關懷而介紹免費的軟體,希望能藉此降低學生的負擔,同時避免盜版行為的習以為常,這樣的行為確實讓人欽佩;特別是世新大學 何宗武教授(真的是佛心來的),從去年開始就想辦法在推廣R這軟體,他跟幾個老師共同的想法都是一致的,好東西其實應該要推廣,特別他又具有以上的特性,因此今年度暑假老師與鼎茂統計諮詢中心就開辦了這樣的一門課:
