HASH(0x903ce540) out of 5 stars A outdated book about the S language 23 Feb. 2007
By A Reader - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book introduces the S language in a pace that is very suitable for first-time. The authors start from a high-level tour of various functionalities, and fill in details in the following chapters. The book is written more in a text book style with many exercises (and solutions). There's a chapter about the inner working of the S interpreter that may be of interest to people who want to reinvent S. Literally half of the book are references of functions of S, which may be handy for people who prefer paper versions than on-line help. The book, published in 1988, is pretty outdated (I haven't checked out the 1998 revised version), and I would recommend new S users to start from, for example, Chambers' Programming with Data: A Guide to the S Language published in 2004.
