Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey monks,

For my new job I'm having to learn R. I feel so sore about this and miss almost everything about Perl syntax and the unix command line. Anyone have any advice on how to make learning Rstudio a bit easier/ergonomic/ sensical if Perl+unix+bash is what you were raised on?

Was thinking maybe there are a few ways to approach R, whether that is having the right coding environment or learning style that will make this more fun!

Thanks for any input!
