It is vital to remember that a change to the calculation mode affects all open files, regardless of how they were originally saved.

The S family (S, Splus and R) and SAS statistical analysis packages provide sophisticated statistical and graphical routines for manipulating data.

Emacs Speaks Statistics (ESS) is based on the merger of two pre-cursors, S-mode and SAS-mode, which provided support for the S family and SAS respectively. ESS provides a common, generic, and useful interface, through emacs, to many statistical packages.
