Not really a SAS question. If you type "R" (capital r) in Google,
you'll get their website http://www.r-project.org/. The faq explains
what R is. Basically, it's a statistical programming language. It's
more flexible but more complex and harder to learn and to use than
statistical packages like SAS, SPSS, Stata. On the other hand, there
are a lot of cutting edge techniques available on R that aren't
available anywhere else. It's a good option if you want to experiment
with new techniques, develop your own, or if you're on a low budget.
