The R package for statistical computing is quickly becoming a de-facto standard in research agencies throughout the world. This open source software comprises of thousands of contributed modules which makes it ideal for a wide range statistical analysis and graphics. Much of this flexibility is due to the design of the software as an object oriented and functional programming language.
