This is the May 25, 2009 version of the R and S-Plus packages and the May 25, 2009 version of the HH online files. There will be occasional updates.

1. Errata:

This file contains: lists of typographical errors, a description of the status of the R files, and a list of additional files not explicitly mentioned in the book. Download this file: errata-110808.pdf (170KB).


2. Downloadable Online Files:

We provide an R package and an S-Plus 8 package in two formats, both containing all the functions with full documentation. HH_2.1-29.zip (729KB) for R on Windows, HH_2.1-29_S_WIN386.zip (563KB) for S-Plus 8 on Windows, and HH_2.1-29.tar.gz (247KB) for Unix.

The HH package is available for R from CRAN and for S-Plus 8 from CSAN.

We provide the complete online files (including all input examples, output transcripts, and figures from the book) in two distribution formats. hh052509.zip (6.4MB) for Windows, hh052509.tar.gz (5.8MB) for Unix. The README gives detailed information about downloading the book's online files, unpacking the zipped file, and storing the resulting directory tree on your computer. README-052509.HH (10KB). The HH package is available for R from CRAN and for S-Plus 8 from CSAN. Sections of the book's Appendix B are therefore obsolete and are revised in this README file.

3. R users:

Our package and online files require a current release of R (2.5.1 released in June 2007 or a newer release).

4. S-Plus users:

5. Sample Graphs:

Two sample graphs, both written using the Trellis features of S-Plus or R, are available for viewing. Both plots were displayed in the JSM 2005 Short Course and were included in our half-day Tutorial at the 61st Deming Conference on Applied Statistics on December 5, 2005 in Atlantic City.

A full color version of the interaction plot that is abstracted as the cover illustration. A black and white version of this graph appears as Figure 14.14d on page 479.
