The R program for statistics is an amazingly powerful and completely free program (under the terms of the Free Software Foundation’s GNU General Public License). If you have any need to do statistics, then you really must take a look at R or, more formally, “The R Project for Statistical Computing“.
What exactly is R? Simply put, “R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.” It is a special open-source implementation of S which is one of the earlier statistical programming languages.
My colleague and fellow document examiner, Tobin Tanaka, is giving a presentation about Forensic Document Examination at the Canadian Identification Society (CIS) Annual Educational Conference at the River Rock Casino in lovely Richmond, BC.
A full review of the conference will be provided at some time in the future but, for now, Tobin has asked me to provide links to his presentations so that attendees have access to his talk in electronic format.
