Installing R on Mac OS X

1) Install Homebrew in your system.

2) Download and install XQuartz (Homebrew does not package XQuartz and it is needed for step 3. Therefore install XQuartz.)

3) Install Fortran and R.

heshans@15mbp-08077:/tmp$ brew install gfortran r 

4) Verify the installation by running R.
