Build Status


Renjin is a new interpreter for the R Language for Statistical Computing, built on the Java Virtual Machine.

The primary goals of the project are to provide a modern interpreter that serves as a drop-in replacement for GNU-R, but is easier to integrate with other systems, offers better performance, and is more extensible.
