The R package system is a widely used open source language and environment for statistical computing and graphics – GNU’s S-Plus. It provides a high-level programming environment together with a sophisticated packaging and testing paradigm. It has a number of mechanisms that allow it to interact directly with software that has been written in many different languages .These tools allow users to incorporate modules based on other work. Viewed in that context, adopting R as a vehicle does not exclude other development environments and paradigms. R can, in those cases, provide a glue or connectivity linking what might otherwise be different products. Finally, R is under very active development by a dedicated team of researchers with a strong commitment to good documentation and software design.This version allows the run on multiple processors using “Parallel” package.
