Thanks much. I'm hacking Emacs/ESS on MS Windows platforms starting
mid next month, thanks to some external prodding (and now, product
availability from both R, Splus). And I think XLispStat might be able
to talk (at least DDE), as well, which would be nice
If anyone evaluates the situation before then (ESS/Emacs/R on MS
Windows 95/98/NT), please send me some email with comments, to help me
out! (MS isn't my native environment by a long shot :-).
