Getting ESS to work with Xemacs on Windows XP

Kevin Murphy, 30 August 2005.

ESS (emacs speaks statistics) is a package for (X)emacs which knows how to format R files correctly (R mode). It also allows you to call R from inside an emacs shell.

Here I provide brief instructions on how to install ESS, assuming you have already installed Xemacs and R.

For instructions on how to use ESS, see An introduction to ESS + Xemacs for Windows Users of R by John Fox.
