Key Points to Remember

  • All R statements can be ended with a semicolon (;), but it's typically optional.
  • R is case-sensitive, meaning that print and Print would be considered different.
  • Comments can be added using # for single-line comments or /* ... */ for multi-line comments.
  • R uses vectorized operations and is commonly used for statistical computing and data analysis.
