• R language?

    From Dumas Walker@DIGDIST/BATTLEST/FREEWAY to ALL on Mon Jun 5 18:43:00 2017
    This afternoon I was on a conference call that included an online
    presentation. The site we were being shown mentioned that there were
    portions that were "written in the R language."

    Has anyone ever heard of 'R'?

    I thought at some point in my job searches that R came up. I wonder if it is anything like Ruby or Rust? He-he, could be another C-like language. :D

    I'll have to look it up.

    I was dead wrong. According to Wikipedia, it's a multi-paradigm, open source programming language, primarily used for arrays, big data/data mining, and statistical mathematics. Cool, but probably will go way over my head.

    That would make sense as the presentation was about a little bit of all of those things. :)

    I took the trouble to write a single program in 'R' in order to answer a stack-overflow question that wasn't getting any bites. That's about all I've done with 'R'...

    That's something I haven't heard of.. I know there is a 'D' programming language, but didn't know anyone had gone up to R. :P

    Same here, I also knew of D, but not R. :)

    It is actually amazing on how many programming languages there are now-a-days, both common and obscure; even a couple of joke programming languages.

    One obscure language I saw the other day: Rust.

    Speaking of joke programming languages, one thing I like looking at sometimes are code obfuscation contests.. Taking something really simple, such as a Hello World program or similar, and seeing the convoluted ways people can do it.
