    You've mentioned that twice now but I was wondering... is Rcmdr installed by default on some systems? I know it's not installed on any of my computers but those are either a macbook or are linux based.

    I just now see that I mentioned it twice and that was rude of me. I must have forgotten about the first post. My apologies to the group.

    As for your question Dason, (structured for the OP) In Windows, if you click on Packages ->Install you can pick RCmdr from the list. then the library(RCmdr) command will start it. I don't know about Linux or Mac.

    The RCommander installation notes are here

    Sorry to jump in so late. Might I recommend going to the UCLA stat computing web site? I think it's a great resource and has tons of examples for the OP to go through and learn.

    PS. To find it, just google it.

    Don't worry about it. Plus I was just asking because even though I definitely know how to install packages - it might not be intuitively obvious to a new user who might need Rcmdr how to install a package so just saying use library(Rcmdr) won't work for them and might just turn them off to the whole idea in the first place if you don't tell them how to install a package. I definitely know a few people who if they just typed library(Rcmdr) and saw it reply
    Code: 
    Error in library(Rcmdr) : there is no package called 'Rcmdr'
    they would just throw their hands up and give up R completely.

    If you want a method that works on all systems for installing packages I would suggest
    Code: 
    install.packages("Rcmdr")
    I only asked my question about whether it was installed by default because I know on the systems I use it isn't installed but I rarely use Windows so I didn't know if that one came with Rcmdr by default...
