Thanks to Marc Feldesman for mentioning this.

Two things I should add for S-news readers.

1. "Programming with Data" applies to versions 5.0 and higher of
S-Plus from MathSoft. There are many new things in the version of S
described, which won't be available in earlier versions of S-Plus.

So of course I'm anxious for everyone to read the book, but the actual
software won't be available until 5.0 comes along.

2. There is a web site for the book,
This has information, updates, and errata for people who already have
the book, and also a pointer to the preface and contents online.
