I'm pretty new with the R language. I'm just trying to get familiar with R and wrote a script in gedit (should I use emacs instead?),
x <- [10.4 5.6 3.1 6.4 21.7]
y <- [12,5.6, 7.2, 1.0, 9.3]
then I went to the command window in the terminal (I'm using unix) to run
this with source("name_of_file"), but it doesn't work. Shouldn't a plot
come up automatically when I run it? What am I doing wrong? It knows what x
and y is, but I don't get an error of what might be wrong.
 10.4 5.6 3.1 6.4 21.7
