This e-book will introduce users to the RStudio framework for using and programming R, the widely used open source statistical computing environment. The RStudio framework, is an open source project that brings together many powerful coding tools into an intuitive interface. It runs under all major platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux) and through a web browser (using the server installation). This text should appeal to newer R users and students who want to explore the interface to get the most out of R and to older R users who want to use a more modern looking development environment. The book will serve as both a resource to look up specific features provided by RStudio and as an introduction to the following processes with R: data analysis, programming and report generation.

...but for anyone who has ever used an IDE for any other language, this book is nearly useless.  If you are on a constrained safari package, save the shelf slot.
