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)

If you mean this one, then there is no relation. +mt 12:33, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

The link for "A Brief History of S" does not work as of today

Works for me. Do you have a PostScript reader/converter? +mt 16:24, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Obsolete reference[edit]


"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."
