data exchange with R? |

hi,
i am looking at the statistical programming env R, which may be familiar
to many. certainly interesting, has vectors and object-oriented data
types...
i was wondering if anyone knows about some data exchange scripts between
R and octave. there is something incipient in the R package e1071 which
permits R to read a (the first) matrix from an octave data file.
R handles complete data.frames which is like a database table where each
column has its own name and data type and they get saved all together as
an ASCII matrix.
in my opinion such a frame (if purely numerical) might be roughly
equivalent to a data file, each column being a separate octave var. so
either you create an export/import mechanism in both languages or you
write a (lets say tcl) script which converts one into the other.
ideas?
