Have you reviewed the old

xlisp machinery that used to

be in R? Check out the RXLisp

library at

http://www.omegahat.org/RXLisp/

and see if this will work. The

http://www.omegahat.org/RXLisp/examples.pdf
reviews calling xlisp from R.

Subject: [R] Calling LISP programs in R

I have written some programs in Common Lisp and I have been using SAS to pipe
those programs to my lisp compiler in batch mode by using the %xlog and

%xlst SAS commands. I wonder if there is in R a similar way to pipe commands

to LISP so that all my work would be concentrated in R even when I have to
call a LISP program? I have looked at the foreign library but this seems to
adjust data types not for piping commands in batch mode.

Here is a simple program (example) to generate random normal variables from
SAS to LISP; of course it's a toy example because there is no need for a
LISP routine in this particular case. I hope R has a similar feature. Thanks
