The package ‘circular’ provides functions for the statistical analysis and graphics representation of circular data (observations which are angles). It originally started as a porting from S-plus to R of functions developed for the book: Circular Statistics, from "Topics in circular Statistics" (2001) S. Rao Jammalamadaka and A. SenGupta, World Scientific. Now, it has an S3 implementation and several new functions and datasets.

The version level of the package is given by the command
`packageDescription("circular")`

.
The most recent version of the package can be obtained from
the R-Forge repository at https://r-forge.r-project.org/projects/circular/
