Hi !

Can we e.g. embed Perl in R and embed R in Java, start the program counter
in Java, call from Java to Perl via R, and then either (1) call back from
Perl to Java via R or (2) just plain return from Perl to Java via R ?

My reason for asking this is general interest in extensible programming
languages.  My background is heavy in Forth, moderate in assembly language,
so far very light in Scheme, R, Java, Perl, XML, Python.  Later I hope to
implement new statistical software and port an existing large scale time
series database/editor/tablewriter as packages under Debian Gnu/Linux.
