Text Editors for R

Andrew Gelman has instructions at http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~gelman/bugsR/texteditor.html

Mike likes Tinn-R (one of the editors on Gelman's page). It has lots of controls, such as hot keys to send lines or blocks of code to R from the editor.


The BUGS Project: http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/bugs/winbugs/contents.shtml

From Gelman: Follow the instructions on the WinBugs webpage: download the WinBugs14.exe file, install WinBugs14, and register and install the key so you can use the full version of the program.
