## Binary packages built by this source

- r-base: GNU R statistical computation and graphics system
R is a system for statistical computation and graphics. It consists

of a language plus a run-time environment with graphics, a debugger,

access to certain system functions, and the ability to run programs

stored in script files.

.

The design of R has been heavily influenced by two existing languages:

Becker, Chambers & Wilks' S and Sussman's Scheme. Whereas the

resulting language is very similar in appearance to S, the underlying

implementation and semantics are derived from Scheme.

.

The core of R is an interpreted computer language which allows

branching and looping as well as modular programming using functions.

Most of the user-visible functions in R are written in R. It is

possible for the user to interface to procedures written in the

C, C++, or FORTRAN languages for efficiency, and many of R's core

functions do so. The R distribution contains functionality for a

large number of statistical procedures and underlying applied math

computations. There is also a large set of functions which provide

a flexible graphical environment for creating various kinds of data

presentations.

.

Additionally, several thousand extension "packages" are available from

CRAN, the Comprehensive R Archive Network, many also as Debian packages,

named 'r-cran-<name>'.

.

This package is a metapackage which eases the transition from the

pre-1.5.0 package setup with its larger r-base package. Once installed, it

can be safely removed and apt-get will automatically upgrade its components

during future upgrades. Providing this package gives a way to users to

then only install r-base-core if they so desire.

- r-base-core: GNU R core of statistical computation and graphics system
R is a system for statistical computation and graphics. It consists

packages that are recommended by the upstream R core team as part of a

complete R distribution, and distributed along with the source of R

itself, as well as directly via the CRAN network of mirrors. This set

comprises the following packages (listed in their upstream names):

- KernSmooth: Functions for kernel smoothing for Wand & Jones (1995)

- Matrix: Classes and methods for dense and sparse matrices and

operations on them using Lapack and SuiteSparse

- MASS, class, nnet and spatial: packages from Venables and Ripley,

`Modern Applied Statistics with S' (4th edition).

- boot: Bootstrap R (S-Plus) Functions from the book "Bootstrap Methods

and Their Applications" by A.C. Davison and D.V. Hinkley (1997).

- cluster: Functions for clustering (by Rousseeuw et al.)

- codetools: Code analysis tools for R

- foreign: Read data stored by Minitab, S, SAS, SPSS, Stata, ...

- lattice: Implementation of Trellis (R) graphics

- mgcv: Multiple smoothing parameter estimation and GAMs by GCV

- nlme: Linear and nonlinear mixed effects models

- rpart: Recursive partitioning and regression trees

- survival: Survival analysis, including penalised likelihood.
