This collection contains software and data associated with the book:
Modern Applied Statistics with S
by W.N. Venables & B.D. Ripley, Springer, 2002.
ISBN 0-387-95457-0. [Details]
The software is for the Fourth Edition; users of earlier editions should find only minor differences, plus additional material.
Once installed, the software is made available via library commands such as
library(MASS) library(nnet) library(spatial) library(class)
In all cases the scripts are available in the scripts directory under the MASS directory.
S-PLUS 6.2 comes with a version of our library sections already installed.
The current sources are available as VR7.tar.gz. To unpack the software, put the downloaded file in an empty directory. Use any of
tar zxvf VR7.tar.gz # needs GNU tar gzcat VR7.tar.gz | tar xvf - gzip -dc VR7.tar.gz | tar xvf -to unpack the software to various information files and the subdirectories MASS, class, nnet and spatial. Now follow the instructions in the file Installation in the top-level directory.
Source files for several of the libraries used are available here see the README and listing. Libraries available from other sites are boot, fastICA, gee, yags, mclust (not 2002 version) and sm.
The software is included in S-PLUS 6.x for Windows, and the scripts are in folder scripts in the MASS folder in the S-PLUS library folder.
An update for the libraries is available for download. Execute it and when prompted select the path to the library directory of your S-PLUS 6 installation.
