These statistical computing environments, in contrast to standard statistical packages, provide programming tools for building other statistical applications. Programmability, flexible data structures, and - in the case of some of the computing environments - graphical interfaces and object-oriented programming, permit researchers to take advantage of emerging statistical methodologies.
Three additional chapters, describing the Axis, R-code and ViSta statistical packages, demonstrate how researchers have extended one of the computing environments - Lisp-Stat - to produce significant statistical applications employing graphical interfaces to statistical software.
