[R] circular statistics in R?

Hi there,

Has anybody heard of a circular statistics packages/function collection
in R  (or S-Plus)? (I mean circular statistics for periodic data,(e.g.,
pointing directions), like the ones described in Batschelet (1980). For
example used to compute mean angular deviation and variance, perform
comparisons of mean angles using e.g. a Watson-Williams test etc.)

I didn't find anything so far, so any help is appreciated!



I'm new to 'R' (so far I did most of my analysis using matlab, but even
the matlab statistics package is rather limited), and was hoping that I
didn't have to write all functions from scratch...
