The core team wishes to thank ...
Rick Becker, John Chambers and Allan Wilks
for the language design.
Particular thanks goes to John Chambers who answered our
(sometimes impertinent) questions with patience and good grace.
The Free Software Foundation and
the FreeBSD and XFree86 teams for the
superior and ``free'' development tools.
Guy Steel and Gerald Sussman for Scheme.
David Betz and Samuel Kamin for pointers on
the design and implementation of small portable interpreters.
The authors of the numerical algorithms
which form the statistical heart of R.
Particularly to the developers of Linpack which represents
a standard of software quality to be aspired to.
Simon Davies for writing the initial R versions of the
glm and lsfit suites of functions.
Alan Lee for writing large amounts of applications code in early
(and buggy) versions of R.
Andreas Buja for encouragement.
Alan Richardson for the code which draws rotated fonts in X11.
Carlos Fonseca for finding and fixing the bug in Alan's code.
The students in all our courses who didn't actually
carry out the threats they made after having bleeding edge development
versions of R inflicted on them in our laboratories.
The Distillers of Scotland and Vintners world wide.
Special thanks from R&R to ...
The University of Auckland for support, including Sun
and IPX computers, two PCs, several Macintoshes and a PowerPC.
The Campus Espresso Cart and the Black Crow Cafe.
