Emacs Speaks Statistics v12.09-2

ESS is itself a package within the emacs text editor and uses emacs features to streamline the creation and use of statistical software.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/ess/v12.09-2

To use ESS, add the following line to the .emacs file in the home directory:

(load "$ESS_LOAD")

An additional buffer *ESS* should then be shown within Emacs. Note that there are more recent versions than the system default of some packages, including R, on this service. See the help for specific applications linked from the applications help page for details.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.

Known Problems & Limitations
