bedatadriven / renjin


JVM-based interpreter for the R language for the statistical analysis.



Renjin is a new interpreter for the R Language for Statistical Computing, built on the Java Virtual Machine.

The primary goals of the project are to provide a modern interpreter that serves as a drop-in replacement for GNU-R, but is easier to integrate with other systems, offers better performance, and is more extensible.

Compiling from Source

At this time, building Renjin completely is only supported on a Linux system with gcc-4.6 installed. The resulting Java builds are fully platform-independent.

See BUILDING for more information.
