R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. Template:App Location

Available versions

  • 2.13.1 (default)
  • 2.14.1

Running the application using modules

To use R with the environment modules system at HPC the following commands are available:

Get module information for r:

$module spider R

Load the default application module:

$module load R

The modulefile for this software adds the directory with executable files to the shell execution PATH and sets the following environment variables:

  • HPC_R_DIR - directory where R is located.
  • HPC_R_BIN - executable directory
  • HPC_R_LIB - library directory
  • HPC_R_INCLUDE - includes directory
