R-help -- Main R Mailing List: Primary help


About R-help

The main R mailing list, for announcements about the development of R and the availability of new code, questions and answers about problems and solutions using R, enhancements and patches to the source code and documentation of R, comparison and compatibility with S and S-plus, and for the posting of nice examples and benchmarks. Please read the General Instructions on the R Mailing Lists page and follow the posting guide!

This has become quite an active list with often dozens of messages per day.
It might make sense therefore to check the digest box in your subscription page.

For discussion about new features or R's future development, use the R-devel mailing list. See the R Project site for more information about R. Before asking, please read the FAQ about R.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the R-help Archives ---- or use the (commercial) mail-archive, or others Historically, the most comprehensive has been the searchable archives provided by Robert King and U. Newcastle.AU or the and the full R site search provided by Jonathan Baron and U.Penn, but currently (2018-04) both have stopped updating. Also, the GMANE interfaces, and the Nabble one seem to be partly working only, currently.

Posters should be aware that the R lists are public discussion lists and anything you post will be archived and accessible via several websites for many years.

Using R-help
Since Jan.31, 2008, to be allowed to freely post messages, you (i.e., your sending e-mail address) must be subscribed to the list.

Thanks to a dozen of volunteer moderators, posting of non-subscribers is still possible -- with a delay because of the moderator approval needed. The volunteers, generously devoting part of their valuable time, are Chuck Cleland, Mark Leeds, Ted Harding, Greg Snow, Robin Hankin, Klaus Nordhausen, Anne York, Adrian Dusa, Kevin Thorpe, Peter Alspach and David Winsemius (in addition to the R-help list maintainers).

To post a message to all the list members, send email to r-help@r-project.org.

You can subscribe to the list, or change your existing subscription, in the sections below.
