R for Windows is a GUI for writing code in R language and performing the statistical and graphical analysis. With advancement in technologies such as BIG DATA, Data Analytics, and Data Science, it has become imperative for new and old organizations to drive growth based on the customer data. To make sense of this data, it is necessary to analyze it first. That is where R plays a major role. But here I am not going to discuss what R is, rather I am going to discuss R for Windows software.
If you’re going to perform analysis on huge quantities of data or even small population samples, you need a software that can handle all the data well. R for Windows a software for this task. This program features a console window where you can write your code and the entire interface is intuitive and easy to use and requires minimum effort in performing tasks such as printing your code, saving and loading workspace, stopping and starting computation. However, I recommend using R-Studio that adds an additional layer over R for Windows to manage data better.
To help you get acquainted with the software, the developers have built in manuals. You can update, load and install packages directly through the console. You can also customize the GUI based on your requirements. You customize aspects such as pager style, font, rows, columns and GUI’s color and font. You can also save your written codes in form of scripts. This makes your code portable and you can run your code on R software on any other system.
To sum up, R for Windows is a must have software if you deal in statistical analysis. I recommend this software to all Data Science and Data Analytics professionals.
- Code can be saved in to scripts
- Load, install and update packages easily
- Console window for writing and editing code
- The interface can be made more graphical to help users
