R – Statistics and Plots

Category: Visualization — Raffael Marty @ 11:31 pm

I can’t believe it. I was fighting with R (the statistical package) for a while now. All the restrictions about data types and such are driving me crazy. It constantly complains that something is not a numerical type if I try to generate a histogram, etc. Well, I just found THE solution: R Commander:

apt-get install r-cran-rcmdr
R --gui=tk

You are in business! I love it! It just does things for you! I am back in business and can continue writing my book!


  1. What book are you writing? Just started reading your blog, apologies if i missed an earlier post about it.

  3. Could you please define computer security visualization? This seems to be a little ambiguous. Thank you.

  4. Computer Security Visualization… Well, taking security relevant data (e.g., log files, electronically generated audit files, security postures) and communicating the data visually.
    Does that make sense?
