XploRe offers a large variety of commands and tools for creating and manipulating multidimensional objects called matrices and lists. The first part of this chapter presents the basic instructions for matrix handling. The second part illustrates some topics in matrix algebra with XploRe . The last part of this chapter presents the list object, which is a useful tool for handling data sets of heterogeneous formats (e.g. text and numeric).
