**Description**:

This manual provides a comprehensive introduction to R, a software package for statistical computing and graphics. R supports a wide range of statistical techniques, and is easily extensible via user-defined functions written in its own language, or using dynamically loaded modules written in C, C++ or Fortran. One of R's strengths is the ease with which well-designed publication-quality plots can be produced.
