R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation,
calculation and graphical display. Among other things it has
* an effective data handling and storage facility,
* a suite of operators for calculations on arrays, in particular
matrices,
* a large, coherent, integrated collection of intermediate tools for
data analysis,
* graphical facilities for data analysis and display either directly
at the computer or on hardcopy, and
* a well developed, simple and effective programming language (called
`S') which includes conditionals, loops, user defined recursive
functions and input and output facilities. (Indeed most of the
system supplied functions are themselves written in the S language.)
If you do not need to build the R shared library (which is needed if
you would like to call R functions from other applications), execute
the script as R_SHLIB=no ./R.SlackBuild
If you do not need to build the BLAS shared library (which is useful
for swapping default unaccelerated BLAS for an accelerated one),
execute the script as BLAS_SHLIB=no ./R.SlackBuild
