The R language becomes a phenomenon in software for actuarial analysis. Its functionality is presented both on the various scientific forums and it has been incorporated into various study programmes at prestigious universities (economic, technical and humanities). The aim of this paper is to briefly describe the main benefits of using this software and some of its non-standard graphical outputs. It is specifically devoted to the analysis of the skewness and kurtosis of data with the use of the Cullen-Frey graph. The graphical outputs are complemented by the command syntax for specific analysis.
