User Installed Software - R/CRAN

Installing R/CRAN add-ons in your user account

R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. There exists a large number of R add-on packages. HPC2N has only a few installed (see our main R page). If you need more than those, the quickest and sometimes best solution is to install those add-ons on your own account.
