The Tinn is an editor in development with the Delphi 5 of the Borland,
addressed to programmers, of free code under GPL (GNU Public License),
developed under the operational system Windows.

The Tinn-R version contains enhancements to allow syntax highlighting
of S language (in *.R, *.r, *.Q or *.q files), that is the language
used by the free statistical environment R (http://www.r-project.org).

It also pops up an additional menu and toolbar when it detects either
Rgui, or SciViews-R (see http://www.sciviews.org/SciViews-R)
running on the same computer (see Tinn-R.pdf atacched).

These add-ons interact with the R console and allow it to submit a code
in part or in whole and to control R directly.
So far the adaptation was tested on Windows XP (used in development)
Windows 95/98 and 2000.

Tinn-R is small, free, simple and efficient. It replaces
the basic code editor which is provided by Rgui or SciViews-R.

The distributed zip file (Tinn-R version r1.04.zip)
must be unzipped first. It contains a 'ReadMe.pdf' file that
explains how to use Tinn-R in details, as well as a couple of
example scripts in addition to 'Tinn-R.exe'.

There is file to install for Tinn-R. The whole program is contained
in a small 'Tinn-R.exe' file (1.5 Mb). Just place this file where you want
to on your computer disk and run it from there... that's all!

Source code of the program is available upon request.

A page for Tinn-R to download is on the SciViews Web Site at
http://www.sciviews.org/Tinn-R and an entry in
http://www.r-project.org/GUI in the section
'IDE/script Editors'.
