I'd like to use R in notebook worksheet. I mean, I have the R evaluation chosen at the top, and when I use TAB to call auto completion I do not get correct names.

For example,after I hit "shapiro" and press TAB ,the auto-completion returns "shapiro_test",but in R,this function is "shapiro.test".

Many other function with "." are returned instead of "_".Is there any solution?

This is a feature, not a bug! In Python, . means a namespace, so we convert dots to underscores. This test should work.

sage: S = r.rnorm(10, mean = 5, sd = 3)
sage: S
 [1]  8.252611  7.721551  5.291445  4.129569 -2.235594  1.466262  4.235228  7.557193  3.338087
[10] 10.203015
sage: r.shapiro_test(S)

    Shapiro-Wilk normality test

data:  sage8 
W = 0.9619, p-value = 0.8068

Seems ok.

sage: r_console()

data:  rnorm(10, mean = 5, sd = 3) 
W = 0.9415, p-value = 0.5698

I know that when calls R with Sage,the dot will convert to underscores.But even when I set the "system" to R with combo box above in notebook,the dot will convert to underscores,and that is the problem.

Ah! That was not at *all* clear in the original, but I have edited the original question a little bit to make this clear. I figure that any of the interfaces there will do that, it's an interesting point.

I've opened for this, though I'm not sure how easy it would be to fix.

This is now also, though it's unclear whether the problem is in Sage or sagenb.
