GNU R scripting and command-line front-end -- transition package


The 'r' (aka 'littler') program provides a lightweight binary wrapper around the GNU R language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.

While R can be used in batch mode, the r binary adds full support for both 'shebang'-style scripting (i.e. using a hashmark-exclamation-path expression as the first line in scripts) as well as command-line use in standard Unix pipelines. In other words, r provides the R language without the environment.

This virtual package ensures that 'r-cran-littler' is installed. Once that is done, this 'littler' package can be removed.
