Thanks a lot to all of you!

Now I see, that use of R (and S) is very different from use of Matlab.  There is no one-to-one correspondence.
I'm shy to ask so stupid questions, but name of language R  makes it hard to find relevant links trough google.  Thanks for pointing to "S Poetry", I would never find it alone,  since I was looking for R-related info.

Thanks, Daniil.
