R does not have friendly GUI (PR#8656)

Submission from: (NULL) (136.160.174.71)


R does not have a friendly gui from where all functions can be accessed by
"point-and-click". Existing one I could try (tk) is too simple.

The friendly gui should also include a spreadsheet-like data-viewer as well as a
data-output (exportable tables) and a graphics-output modules (the latter
already exits).

Hi,

Do you also want to be able to type :
PROC UNIVARIATE ....
in R ?

What you described is *so* not a bug. You have not tried hard enough.

There are gui for R : JGR, sciviews, Rcmdr, etc ....
You can export results in HTML (package R2HTML), to latex (package xtable).
If the features therein are not completely satisfying your needs, you
can contribute something, as you know it is open source.

$ apt-get install r-cran-rcmdr
$ R
$ > library(Rcmdr)

is pretty close.

Exactly -- and I am missing the feature where R is doing my home work for me.
The sequence

        > library(timemachine)
        > timemachineGo(highschool)
        > timemachineDo(getBetterMarks)

fails. Any idea why?

Well put, Romain!

Regards, Dirk

As per your signature, "there are no rules here - we're trying to
accomplish something". I agree with you in "You have not tried hard
enough" and specially thank Mr Eddelbuettel for Rcmdr suggestion. It
is similar to my request in the bug report.

as you mentioned, sudo apt-get r-cran-foreigntime.

Thanks,

Sincerely.
