R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project which is similar to the S language and environment which was developed at Bell Laboratories (formerly AT&T, now Lucent Technologies) by John Chambers and colleagues.
R can be considered as a different implementation of S. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered under R.
