I stumbled upon your question. On Windows, it is easy to use R from within Mathematica. You just have to download and install the statconnDCOM server (free for noncommerial use) from rcom.univie.ac.at The following piece of code shows how you than can use R from within Mathematica. Needs["NETLink`"] myR = CreateCOMObject["RCOMServerLib.StatConnector"] myR@Init["R"] myR@SetSymbol["xxx",12321] result1=myR@GetSymbol["xxx"] myR@EvaluateNoReturn["randmat<-matrix(rnorm(100),10)"] rmat=myR@GetSymbol["randmat"] result2=myR@Evaluate["solve(matrix(1:4,2))"] Dobromir Tzotchev wrote: > I would like to use functions from some R libraries within Mathametica. I have seen that there exists a software called RLink but it is not readily available. Is the way to go to use the R functionaly in C/C++ and then use MathLink to call the C/C++ functions? > > Thanks. >
