R Examples for Beginners – How to Execute Code in R

(R Example for Citizen Data Scientist & Business Analyst)


We find it easiest to use RStudio. You can also paste the code in a normal R console or let R run a source file. However these approaches are a bit less fail-safe.

Using RStudio

Download and install RStudio.
Open RStudio and do this:

  1. Click on the menu: File -> New -> R Script
  2. Paste the code in the new source code area
  3. Click the “Source” button above the code area:


You can also use the console in RStudio. If you click “Run” instead of “Source” user input might not work properly.

You can use the R documentation like this: help(function.name).

Using the R console

Running the r program on the command line or elsewhere will start the console. You can paste your code there.

Running a source file with R

You can run a source file like this: r -f filename.r.
R also provides a lot of other command line arguments.
