This is a bibliography on the S and S-Plus statistics programming languages.
bibliography, R, S, S-Plus, statistics
Author Comments:
The vendor World-Wide Web site is now at
Recently, a freely-distributable reimplementation of S-Plus, called R, has been developed; for details, see the World-Wide Web locations
There is also a useful site at
which ``offers North American mirrors of several sites of interest to statisticians:
Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN)
R, a language described by its creators Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman as `not unlike S', is freely available under the terms of the GNU Public License. The source for Unix, Windows or Macintosh systems is available. Compiled binaries are available for Debian Linux, RedHat Linux, Windows or Macintosh systems.
Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS
Description and support files for the second edition of the classic book by Bill Venables and Brian Ripley.
Emacs Speaks Statistics
An enhanced and extended version of S-mode for GNU emacs or xemacs.
A free, compatible replacement for the statistical package SPSS. PSPP was originally called Fiasco.
Local Projects:
Mixed-Effects Models in S
A library for S-PLUS (and perhaps other dialects of S) developed by Jose Pinheiro and Douglas Bates.
Current Index to Statistics Client/Server
Software for client/server access to the Current Index to Statistics.''
There are electronic archives of S-related reports at:
There is a frequently-asked questions list at:

This bibliography has been collected from the author's personal bibliography files, from the very large computer science bibliography collection on in /pub/bibliography to which many people of have contributed, and from several Internet-accessible library catalogs, notably those of the University of California, Stanford University, Library of Congress, and OCLC.
At version 1.05 [05-Feb-1996], a search of the OCLC Article1st database resulted in the addition of only 5 new references; it appears that relatively little mention is being made in current literature about this programming system.
BibTeX citation tags are uniformly chosen as name:year:abbrev, where name is the family name of the first author or editor, year is a 4-digit number, and abbrev is a 3-letter condensation of important title words. Citation tags were automatically generated by software developed for the BibNet Project.
In this bibliography, entries are sorted first by ascending year, and within each year, alphabetically by author or editor, and then, if necessary, by the 3-letter abbreviation at the end of the BibTeX citation tag, using the ``bibsort -byyear'' utility. Year order has been chosen to make it easier to identify the most recent work.
