How to find the R version you are using?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Most of the times, we need to use packages in R and some packages are restricted to different versions in R, generally to newer versions. Therefore, we might need to find which version of R we are using. To find the R version, we can directly use the command R.Version().

Example

 Live Demo

R.Version()

Output

$platform
[1] "x86_64−w64−mingw32"
$arch
[1] "x86_64"
$os
[1] "mingw32"
$system
[1] "x86_64, mingw32"
$status
[1] ""
$major
[1] "4"
$minor
[1] "0.2"
$year
[1] "2020"
$month
[1] "06"
$day
[1] "22"
$`svn rev`
[1] "78730"
$language
[1] "R"
$version.string
[1] "R version 4.0.2 (2020−06−22)"
$nickname
[1] "Taking Off Again"

We can also use the command R.version.string for the same purpose as shown below −
