  • 2M+ users, 3000+ packagesFully programmable statistical languageComplete library of statistical functionsUnparalleled representational graphicsSupplanted and replaced SAS/SPSS in the AcademyPenetrated enterprises where sophisticated statistical modeling is mission-criticalFinance, Pharma, etc.
  • Type ahead: the IDE recognizes an R function as you type in the first few characters and shows the completed formula and parametersCode snippets: Templates for common R functions e.g. for loop, xy plot. These are written in XML and users can add their ownSolution Window: The RPE organizes R scripts and data files in folders by Solution. This facilitates but does not implement versioningThe lists of packages of installed and the list of loaded packages are available for inspection. Clicking on these packages shows their components in the object windowThe top right Object Browser window shows all of the objects available in the R environmentThe bottom right object window shows the details of particular objectsDebugging Tools: when running in debugging mode the RPE supports breakpoints, stepping in and out of code and shows the contents of variables upon “mouse over”.Users may step through all code available in the Solution that is active.
