Python and R: Python Interfaces to R
R is a powerful and freely available statistical language. In Debian it is installed as r-base.
# wajig install r-base
We can now install either RSPython or RPy. Both provide a Python interface to R, and RSPython also provides an R interface to Python while RPy is generally easier to use than RSPython! RSPython is not packaged for Debian yet, but RPy is.
