Hi Thomas,
I'm not an expert - so I might use incorrect terminology, but hopefully you'll get the picture!

Assuming that you've got your data in a .CSV file, you'd first read in your data, where the first three lines might look like...

x,y
0,2.205954909440447
1,8.150580118785099

# load the info into a data.frame called mydata mydata <- read.csv("mycsvfile.csv",header=TRUE) # now "attach" to this data.frame, so that the internal attach(mydata)
# now do the regression and store it in the object "myregr" myregr <- lm(y~x)
# print out the info from myregr
myregr
# to get more info from myregr use the summary() method... summary(myregr)

There is an enormous quantity of documentation available, though it takes a little while to learn to use it properly and get the full effectiveness from it...

I strongly recommend that you read the "Posting Guide" http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html which will help you.

For more information, have a look at the introduction to R; which is a tad terse in places - so read it slowly :-)

Have a look also at the other documentation http://www.r-project.org/other-docs.html

In particular I'd recommend John Maindonalds online book at http://cran.r-project.org/other-docs.html

cheers!
Sean
