Downloading the R-System
A very similar program to S-Plus called "R" is available for download for free (the program is in the public domain). R and S-Plus are both based on the same base language, the "S" language. Hence, their syntax is similar. To download R, access the CRAN website at: https://cran.r-project.org/.
