[S] Summary: "Programming with Data", by John Chambers

Thu, 30 Apr 1998 17:13:22 -0300

I had a couple of replies to my posting about a new book by John Chambers
called "Programming with Data: A Guide to the S Language".
Some notes:

1. In my original posting I confused the version numbers of S and S-PLUS.
The new version of S is version 4.
S-PLUS version 5.0 will be based on version 4 of S.

2. S-PLUS version 5.0 may appear some time this year.

3. John Chambers' web site is:


It includes a link to a document (dvi format) describing Version 4 of S.

4. Springer-Verlag's web site is:


But "Programming with Data: A Guide to the S Language" doesn't seem
to appear there. I don't think it has actually been released yet.
The catalogue I looked at gives a price ($39.95) but only an approximate
number of pages!

In any case, I am looking forward to the release of the book as well as
S-PLUS version 5.
