R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of computer plaforms.

R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible. The S language is often the vehicle of choice for research in statistical methodology, and R provides an Open Source route to participation in that activity.

One of R's strengths is the ease with which well-designed publication-quality plots can be produced, including mathematical symbols and formulae where needed. Great care has been taken over the defaults for the minor design choices in graphics, but the user retains full control.

Additional Notes

Compilation Note:

(1) R will build it own search path for package installation, and it is taken from the environment varialbe $LD_LIBRARY_PATH when R is build

(2) It is found that a library in our scheduler LSF is conflict with R

(3) To build a problem free R, remove the library path of LSF from $LD_LIBRARY_PATH before staring the compilation procedure.
