Note: This software contains R functions and the interface is connected to Internet Explorer Browser through a package called R-plugin. Since R-plugin is no longer constantly maintianed by the author, we suggest that you directly run the code in R. To do that, there is an example of R code in "\\example\\simple example of R procedures.txt" in the package.
