Emacs Speaks Statistics (ESS) provides an intelligent, consistent interface between the user and the software. ESS interfaces with SAS, S-PLUS, R, BUGS and other statistical analysis packages under the Unix, Microsoft Windows, and Apple Mac operating systems. ESS is itself a package within the emacs text editor and uses emacs features to streamline the creation and use of statistical software. ESS knows the syntax and grammar of statistical analysis packages and provides consistent display and editing features based on that knowledge. ESS assists in interactive and batch execution of statements written in these statistical analysis languages.
