[R] (no subject)

The "R Package" of Casgrain & Legendre is not an R package, but it is 
an independent, compiled software package. Its name, R, comes from 
golden VAX/VMS (or perhaps even PDP!) days, and pre-dates the R we know 
as R. It seems that Pierre Legendre now uses our R in teaching, at 
least in some parts, so it may be that some of the methods will be 
ported to our R. Otherwise you must use his (or their) R, which is 
freely available (and I think, even GPL'ed now).

For the Casgrain-Legendre R, see 
http://www.fas.umontreal.ca/BIOL/legendre/. Pierre Legendre explained 
somewhere the naming history, but I can't find it in his (or 
Casgrain's) web pages. However, his package was called R long before 
Ihaka & Gentleman introduced their R.
