Hi Faiz,


Yes, you are correct.
After that when ever you press Enter or click on the icon, the command line version of R will open.
The first thing that you should type is "help()" without the quotes.

Also, I was following the responses to your previous email, and am wondering if you tried the Java Access Bridge with SPSS as Marry suggested?
While R is accessible, shouldn't you try if the statistical package that your class mates are using can work for you?

Regards
