You need to explain what you mean by the question, for example what
paradigms you have in mind.
R is a functional language; as I've discovered, this means some
standard OO programming approaches don't carry over too naturally. In
particular, functions don't really "belong" to classes. R purists
would probably want that to say class-based 00 programming doesn't
fit, since R is function-based OO.
There is a package that permits a more traditional ("class-based") OO
style; I think it's called R.oo.
