Getting started

Window -> Show View -> Other... -> Scripting -> R Console will show the R console, where R code can be run interactively. Some example commands:
> 2+2 # Add numbers
[1] 4
> sin(pi/3) # Compute sinus of
[1] 0.8660254
> x <- c(1,2,3,4,5,6) # Create a vector
> y <- x^2 # Square the elements of x
> y # print (vector) y
[1] 1 4 9162536
> plot(x, y) # Plots the vector x against y
> ?plot # Get help about plot command (can be used with any command)
The R editor provides convenient options for working with R scripts.
A tutorial is available for Building QSAR models for virtual screening and mutagenicity predictions with Bioclipse-R. This is also the suplementary information for the article above and includes step-by-step instructions for building and deploying predictive models using Bioclipse-R, as well as a screencast for using the resulting models.
