  • First go to the Cran R-Project Website’s Homepage, which you can access from the link given below:

  • On the left side of the homepage, you can go to ‘Packages’ and click on it.

  • When you click on any package, the information related to that package is displayed, which you can read and analyze.

  • There is ‘Reference Manual’ available and there is also a resource File which you can download.
