How might one test Matlab and perl code during "R CMD check"?
I ask for two reasons: First, the "fda" package exists in both R
and Matlab, and it would help if we could run test examples in Matlab as
part of "R CMD check". I tried "R.matlab", but could not get it to work
in that context.
Second, I have professional colleagues who write code in Matlab
and perl, but have no unit or regression testing. If I could test
Matlab and perl from within "R CMD check" examples, I think I could get
them to use it, because it would produce more "trustworthy software"
[the "Prime Directive" of Chambers (2008) Software for Data Analysis
(Springer)] AND give them documentation at the same time -- while
simultaneously reducing the cost of producing and maintaining code to
