About this book

Over the years S-PLUS has proven to be a powerful tool for professional statisticians and data analysts. With the release of S-PLUS for Windows, featuring pull down menus and dialogs, the advanced statistical and visualization techniques of S-PLUS have become easily accessible for all users. Its graphical interface has made S-PLUS very popular among a much wider group of people than ever before.


Using S-PLUS through the graphical user interface may satisfy the needs of many users. However, those whose needs extend beyond what is offered by the ready-made GUI routines can take advantage of the extensive possibilities of the elegant object oriented S language contained in S-PLUS. An introduction into the S language can be found in Chapters 8 and 9.
