Ajay Ohri has been trying out the Code Snippets feature in Revolution R (available free to academics), and has found it handy for writing code for statistical analysis:

Now even if you are averse to using a GUI /or GUI creators don’t have your particular analysis you can basically type in code at an extremely fast pace.

It is useful to people who do not have to type in the entire code, but it is a boon to beginners as the parameters in function inserted by code snippet are automatically selected in multiple colors.

If you want to see Code Snippets in action, check out the video below by Revolution's Sue Ranney. 

Sue starts working with Code Snippets at around the 1:45 mark.
