R is a programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. The R language is widely used among statisticians for developing statistical software and data analysis.

R is an implementation of the S programming language combined with lexical scoping semantics inspired by Scheme. S was created by John Chambers while at Bell Labs. R was created by Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and now, R is developed by the R Development Core Team, of which Chambers is a member. R is named partly after the first names of the first two R authors (Robert Gentleman and Ross Ihaka), and partly as a play on the name of S.

R is part of the GNU project. The source code for the R software environment, which is written primarily in C, Fortran, and R. R is freely available under the GNU General Public License, and pre-compiled binary versions are provided for various operating systems. R uses a command line interface; however, several graphical user interfaces are available for use with R.

R provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, including linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, and others. R is easily extensible through functions and extensions, and the R community is noted for its active contributions in terms of packages. There are some important differences, but much code written for S runs unaltered. Many of R's standard functions are written in R itself, which makes it easy for users to follow the algorithmic choices made. For computationally intensive tasks, C, C++, and Fortran code can be linked and called at run time. Advanced users can write C or Java code to manipulate R objects directly.

R is highly extensible through the use of user-submitted packages for specific functions or specific areas of study. Due to its S heritage, R has stronger object-oriented programming facilities than most statistical computing languages. Extending R is also eased by its permissive lexical scoping rules.

According to Rexer's Annual Data Miner Survey in 2010, R has become the data mining tool used by more data miners (43%) than any other.

Another strength of R is static graphics, which can produce publication-quality graphs, including mathematical symbols. Dynamic and interactive graphics are available through additional packages.

R has its own LaTeX-like documentation format, which is used to supply comprehensive documentation, both on-line in a number of formats and in hard copy.

ProtoCode is a mobile playground for coding JavaScript (ES6/JSX), CoffeeScript, CSS, and HTML with syntax highlighting, code validation, auto-indentation, over fifteen included frameworks for offline use, and the ability to add your own! As of version 3, you now have the ability to add any additional frameworks for offline use that you want! It is an amazing tool to fiddle with various frameworks, ideas, or to help you learn to code!

*The Editor*
ProtoCode's editor has the features you'd expect. Syntax highlighting for JS/CoffeeScript/CSS/HTML, auto-indentation to keep your code clean, one tap commenting and un-commenting, autocompletion of braces, brackets, quotes, and parentheses. Most of which is made possible by the intelligent keyboard.

*The Keyboard*
The keyboard in ProtoCode includes an additional row of smart keys. The keys are swipeable, allowing for each key to provide 5 character choices. Also included is the trackpoint key. The trackpoint key allows you to simply hold down and move the cursor through your code by dragging your finger around. Double-tap the trackpoint to select the current word or double-tap and drag to select more text. The keyboard's features go on and on. Select some text and type a forward-slash and you'll comment and un-comment the selection, you can also wrap selections with characters that have an open and close like quotes, braces, and parentheses.

ProtoCode currently includes 30 themes to choose from. Dark, light, black, white, blue, green, and more. The unique thing about ProtoCode themes is that the entire app takes on a new look and feel when selecting a new theme. Like your dark editor? Well, a dark editor comes with a dark keyboard, navigation bar, and options panel! The same goes for any other theme.

*Code Validation*
ProtoCode has ESLint built-in! ESLint JavaScript validation is happening in real-time as you are coding, evaluating syntax, unused functions and variables, and indicating lines with issues. Simply tap on a line and get the info you need in order to fix it. CoffeeScript validation is also supported by leveraging CoffeeLint.

The console in ProtoCode makes debugging your code easy. The console button in the lower right will even discretely flash when something is logged. You can see errors, execute commands, and manipulate your project.
