Sign in to queue

Description

Bell Labs in the 1970s was a hotbed of research in computing, statistics and many other fields. The conditions there encouraged the growth of the S language and influenced its content. The 40th anniversary of S is an appropriate time to relate a personal view of that scene and reflect on why S (and R) turned out as it did.
