Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS

S-PLUS 5.x on Unix Software

This collection contains software and data associated with the book:
Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS
by W.N. Venables & B.D. Ripley, Springer, 1997.
ISBN 0 387 98214 0 or 3 540 98214 0. [Details]

The software is for the Second Edition; users of the First Edition should find only minor differences, plus additional material.

This directory is for S-PLUS 5.x on Unix machines: the S-PLUS 3.x and Windows software is elsewhere.

The following files are available:
VR5sp5.tar.gz [b ]
tar archives of the software and datasets (current version: )
VR2scripts.Z [b ] or VR2scripts.gz [b ]
compressed Unix shar archive of S-Plus code given in the text

To unpack the software

Put the downloaded file VR5sp5.tar.gz in an empty directory. Use one of

	gzcat VR5sp5.tar.gz | tar xvf -
        tar zxvf VR5sp5.tar.gz     # GNU tar only, e.g. Linux
to unpack the software to various information files and the subdirectories MASS, class, nnet, spatial, treefix and test. (Directory test contains tests and instructions to use them.) Now follow the instructions in the file Install in the top-level directory.

Once installed, the libraries are made available via library commands such as

       library(MASS, first=T)
       library(treefix, first=T)

Use any of

        zcat VR2scripts.Z | sh
	uncompress -c VR2scripts.Z | sh
	gzcat VR2scripts.gz | sh
	gzip -dc VR2scripts.gz | sh

to unpack the scripts to directory scripts. The file ch08 contains the code from Chapter 8, and so on. These files can be used to cut-and-paste from an editor to the S-Plus session.

To use the software

Read (and follow) the instructions in the file Install.
