This rather long "paper" documents the use of the computer tools that we will be using in class this year (mostly S-PLUS, my additional S-PLUS commands, and a little Emacs). It contains examples of almost all of the things that we will be doing. It also contains an outline of some of the technical material in the course. I suggest that you print out a copy or download the pdf for viewing on a computer.
