Abstract

S-PLUS is a language designed for data analysis and graphics developed originally at AT&T’s Bell Laboratories. It is described in detail in Becker, et al. (1988), Chambers and Hastie (1993), Venables and Ripley (1997) and Krause and Olson (2000). In addition to providing a powerful language, the most recent versions of the software, S-PLUS 2000 and S-PLUS 6, also include an extensive graphical user interface (GUI) on Windows platforms (this is not available in UNIX). The GUI allows routine analyses to be carried out simply by completing various dialogue boxes and allows graphs to be produced and edited by a ‘point-and-click’ procedure.
