Re: How to have correct citation of gnumeric

there are especially files called README*, CITATION, COPYRIGHTS, and
probably others containing names of people who contributed effort. 
The CITATION files contain citations to scholarly journal articles...
maybe that's what she's after???  And there may be yet other files she
would want to see.  There are a lot of *.html files too in that
package.  Anyway, maybe she needs to look in the files already
installed on her computer.
As I'm understanding Gabriela, Tim is right. She needs the information
for a citation for Gnumeric itself. She supplied the corresponding
information for R to illustrate what she needs (and in a citation style
that I'm personally unfamiliar with).

I think what she is most likely missing is an author or organization
that is responsible for Gnumeric and another one that publishes it. As I
was looking around in her response to her question, I think the Gnome
Foundation (if I'm remembering the name right) might be listed as a
publisher; sometimes this can also be used in place of the author.

Ken, I think Gabriela is asking how Gnumeric should be credited in the

Dear Sir or Madam

I am using R statisitcal tookit and Gnumeric to perform statistical

gnumeric in this paper.
I am using the statistical package of the last gnumeric version

To R I was able to retrieve the infomration:

computing. R Foundation for Statistical Computing, Vienna, Austria.
URL (2014)."

I tried to find information in the webpage but I didn't succeed.
Would you, please, send me the directions to find the correct

I don't understand what sort of citation you're seeking or what that
citation is meant to verify or support.  Perhaps you could explain this

In the off-chance it might be helpful, here's the entry for R-core
in the RPM package:

Description :
A language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
R is similar to the award-winning S system, which was developed at
Bell Laboratories by John Chambers et al. It provides a wide
variety of statistical and graphical techniques (linear and
nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis,
classification, clustering, ...).

R is designed as a true computer language with control-flow
constructions for iteration and alternation, and it allows users to
add additional functionality by defining new functions. For
computationally intensive tasks, C, C++ and Fortran code can be linked
and called at run time.
