Inferno-ish R

Main points:

  • A big problem with R is that it is useful — some history explains this
  • R has problems because it is both a programming language and used interactively
  • A severe lack of consistency comes about because of community contributions
  • The R Inferno is one tool to help you suffer the chaos with humor
