RKWard aims to become an easy to use, transparent frontend to R, a powerful system for statistical computation and graphics. This software tries to combine the power of the R-language with the ease of use of commercial statistical packages.
Besides a convenient GUI for the most important statistical functions, future versions will also provide seamless integration with an office-suite. Although it can run in numerous environments, it was designed for and integrates with the KDE desktop environment.
It aims to provide useful features both to experienced users of R, wishing to exploit R’s scripting capabilities, as well as to users new to R, looking for an easy way to carry out statistical computation tasks.
