​In a nutshell, it is a algorithmic programming language​ with an emphasis
on statistics. If you have heard of the SAS language, R is used for similar
needs. One of the main pluses of R is CRAN - The Comprehensive R Archive
Network. This is a large set of statistical packages, which can be used as
a library. A good web site is https://cran.revolutionanalytics.com/ to
start. A search of "r language review" will get you some good hits from
sites such as InfoWorld and NY Times as well as the usual "geek" sites.
