R Support

Compose supports R as a scripting language for both edition and execution.

Unlike OML, Python, or Tcl, Compose does not come with the “R software environment for statistical computing” pre-installed; you must install the R software.

Note: Please note the following when using the R language on Linux.
  • Data Science, Data Analytics, Statistics, Design

    help(‘topic’) and help.start() doesn’t work.
  • From the Plot window, you cannot use the "X" button to close the window. Instead, please use the dev.off() command to close the Plot window

For more details on how the R language is exposed in Compose, please see the following sections.
