Under construction: 2001-April-9.
There is an introductory article by Brian Ripley in the first R Newsletter (January 2001).
The paper `R/S Interfaces to Databases' from the DSC-2001 proceedings contains much useful background information.
The `R Data Import/Export Manual'in the R distribution (and on-line) contains a overview.
Proposal on `generic database access methods' from Timothy Keitt <Timothy.Keitt@StonyBrook.Edu> on 2001 Mar 19.
There is a mailing list for discussion of R and databases, with a home web page (thanks to Martin Maechler).
This site is intended as an intermediate repository for more or less finalized ideas and plans for the R statistical system. Most parts of the site are open to the public, and we welcome discussions on the ideas, but please do not take them for more than that, in particular there is no commitment to actually carry out the plans in finite time unless expressedly stated.This directory maintained by Brian Ripley <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
