       R - a language for data analysis and graphics


       R [options] [< infile] [> outfile]
       R CMD command [arguments]


       Start R, a system for statistical computation and graphics, with the specified options, or
       invoke an R tool via the 'R CMD' interface.

       R is a language which bears a passing resemblance to the S language developed at AT&T Bell
       Laboratories.  It provides support for a variety of statistical and graphical analyses.  R
       is a true computer language which contains a  number  of  control-flow  constructions  for
       iteration  and  alternation.   It allows users to add additional functionality by defining
       new functions.

       On systems which have the GNU readline(3) library, R will maintain a command  history,  so
       that commands can be recalled, edited and re-executed.


       Most  options  control  what  happens  at the beginning and at the end of an R session, in
       particular which files are being read and written, and how much memory is reserved for the
       R process.

              Set vector heap minimum to N bytes; '4M' = 4 MegaB

       -q, --quiet
              Don't print startup message

              Same as --quiet

              Make R run as quietly as possible
