Talk:S (programming language)

How does this language compare to APL and/or LISP?
- Read the paper from Becker (in PostScript format), as he discusses both these languages, and how they influenced the development of S. Probably the best way to compare the languages is to experience it first-hand. If you don't have access to S-PLUS, then get R, which is a GNU dialect of S. There are many many examples on the web showcasing R examples.+mwtoews 20:46, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

"The R implementation, part of the GNU free software project, is the top statistical language in the TIOBE index (position 18 in September 2013), three spots above the commercial software SAS."
