A complex application that allows users to easily edit and compile code or build projects written in the R programming language
Tinn-R is a file editing tool that allows programmers to modify code. It supports syntax highlighting for the S statistical programming language (R, r, Q, and q formats), as well as C/C++, C#, HTML, Java, JavaScript, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, SQL, TeX, and XML, among others.

The interface is comfortable to work with. Aside from the main workspace (editor), Tinn-R provides an Explorer-like folder structure, project management area, text and Latex markups, and a database panel.

You can insert LaTeX math, header, format and font tags, customize syntax highlighting color preferences for each language, use conversion tools (e.g. HTML slides, PHP, plain text), as well as backup and restore databases.

Tinn-R also lets you record and play macros, use an ASCII chart, view file differences with color highlighting, use a spellchecker, sort strings, numbers and dates, count words, spaces and characters (with or without spaces), set bookmarks, as well as export formatted data to RTF, HTML or TeX.   

As far as program settings go, you can customize the editor keystrokes, enable/disable advanced options (e.g. drag and drop editing, group undo) and customize the display (e.g. colors, font), reconfigure hotkeys, ask Tinn-R to remember the last file state, activate word wrap, and more.

The application is light on the system resources, using minimal CPU and RAM. It has a good reaction speed and doesn't decrease overall performance. We have not experienced any issues in our evaluation. All in all, Tinn-R comes packed with some powerful tools for editing programming code.
