[Axiom-developer] [WishList] Wish list -- integration with R -- Ed Boras

While we're on the subject of numerical packages, I do nearly all of my number 
crunching in R. I'd like to be able to access some kind of symbolic package 
from R, although I'm not sure yet what sort of interface I'd use. At the 
moment, the most promising way to add symbolic capabilities to R seems to be 
using the R facilities for calling C++ code to call the open source Ginac 

Going the other way, calling a number crunching package from Axiom, seems 
un-necessary, but given a choice between SciLab, Octave and R, I'd take R 
hands-down! As noted above, SciLab is not truly open source/free as in speech, 
and Octave isn't well supported. R is both open source and well supported.
