Rweb is a Web based interface to R
(a statistical analysis package) that takes
the submitted code, runs R on the code (in batch mode), and returns the
output (printed and graphical).
R is a free statistical analysis package developed by Robert Gentleman and
It is almost source code compatible with S or Splus so if you have experience
with those languages you should have no problem using Rweb.
For information about R you can read the
R introduction page,
R authors ,
or visit the
If you would like to learn more about using R you can try a fairly
rough latex2html conversion of the
developed by Venables and
Smith and then modified for R by Gentleman and Ihaka
Which Version Do You Want?
A simple web interface to R that works on most browsers and
requires knowledge of R (or Splus). You type in the code, click the
submit button and a page with the results (analysis and graphs) is returned.
This version of Rweb only requires a browser that can handle forms
and graphics (if you do any plotting). A small, sample code snippet is
included in case you don't know R but you still want to try it out.
These modules are designed as a point and click forms based interface to
R for use in introductory statistics courses.
Students do not need to know anything about writing programs in R. They
choose a data set, the type of analysis, and the options for the analysis.
The currently implemented analyses include Regression, Summary statistics
and graphs, ANOVA, Two Way Tables, and a Probability calculator. The output
includes printouts and graphs which can be cut and pasted into project
writeups or printed out.

love to have some advice. So, anybody that has an idea about improving
these modules, please let me know."
