I am currently trying to switch from Splus to R and I would like to know
whether there is a way of transfering Splus objects stored on disk into the R
environment. In Splus I would do this using the function get, e.g., foo <-
get(foo,where="dirname") where dirname is the name of a directory containing
the Splus objects. In R, argument 'where' of function get appears to be
replaced by argument 'envir', whose meaning is rather nebulous for me at the
Thanks for answering me. Sorry if this question has been already asked zillion
of times, as it is likely to have been.
