Dear All,

I have just read a glowing review (in the Int. Journal of
Epidemiology) of "Analyzing Medical Data Using S-PLUS" by Everitt and
Rabe-Hesketh and it sounds like the sort of thing I would like to get
my hands on.  Is anyone on this list familiar with this book, and in
particular have a feel for how useful it will be with R?  According to
the review the emphasis is on the command line rather than the gui
which is a good sign for "compatibility".  From what I have picked up
from being on this list, my copy of MASS and various R docs the
differences are likely to be few, but I would feel more comfortable if
I could get some opinions from more experienced R/S-plus users.
