Data file created by R, a statistical computing and graphing application; contains the history of commands entered by the user during an open R session; similar to a .BASH_HISTORY file for the Bash shell; enables the user to push the up arrow to scan through the list of previously entered commands.
R automatically saves an RHISTORY file (.RHistory, without a filename prefix) in the R working directory. Additionally, the user can manually save the command history using the application menu options.
Our goal is to help you understand what a file with a *.rhistory suffix is and how to open it.
The R History file type, file format description, and Mac, Windows, and Linux programs listed on this page have been individually researched and verified by the FileInfo team. We strive for 100% accuracy and only publish information about file formats that we have tested and validated.
