The RMatlab Package


This is the early release of a bi-directional interface between the R and Matlab languages. fe The idea is that Matlab users can call R functions as if they are regular Matlab functions without learning the R language, and similarly R users can access Matlab functionality from with the familiar R environment and syntax.

This is work with Bitao Liu at Davis.


R package source RMatlab_0.2-5.tar.gz. This currently only runs on Unix. We are hoping that people that use Matlab on either Windows or Mac OSX will help to develop the configuration details for those systems.
