[R] S for the Unwilling

There is a draft of a new document at 
entitled "Using S for the Unwilling". (Or click on Tutorials from the 
main web page.)

The aim is to get an inexperienced person who has a task to do in S-PLUS 
or R
oriented and comfortable enough not to give up.  The audience I have in 
mind has
no experience with either statistics or programming (and probably is not 
keen on
changing that state).  Attention span is assumed to be minimal, so the 
is by design as brief as possible.

I would appreciate comments.  I'd be especially interested in the 
thoughts of the
recently unwilling.

The document will be available for copying and redistribution as long as 
no more
than a nominal fee is charged.
