Abstract

HE SOFTWARE PACKAGER” has become very popular over the past decade for good reason. It has open source, meaning you can examine exactly what steps the program is performing. Compare this to the “black box” approach adopted by so many other software packages that hope you will just push the Enter button and accept the results that appear. Another feature of open software is that if you identify a problem, you can fix it, or, at least, publicize the error until it gets fixed. Finally, once you become proficient at R you can contribute to it. One of the great features of R is the availability of packages of programs written by R users for other R users.

There is some debate on how to choose a mirror site. There is a cloud option that picks a site for you. Picking a site geographically close to you will reduce web traffic. Conversely, a very distant site may offer faster service because most people on that side of the earth are asleep.
