Dear useRs,

I'd like to announce the release of pxR, a package to use the PC-Axis file format in R.

PC-Axis is a software family consisting of a number of programs for the Windows and Internet environment used to present statistical information. It is used by national and international institutions to publish statistical data. Programs in the PC-Axis family use a particular data file format. pxR provides a set of functions for reading and writing PC-Axis files.

The function read.px reads a PC-Axis file from a given location and returns an object of the class px containing all the data and metadata in the PC-Axis file. The single most important piece of information with a px object is the data matrix, which can be extracted with function as.data.frame.

For instance,

	my.px.object <- read.px("/path/to/pc-axis/file")
	my.px.data   <-  as.data.frame(my.px.object)

will create the data.frame my.px.data with the data in the corresponding PC-Axis file.

Best,

Oscar.
