Hi David, I hope all is well w/ you. Co-operation beetwen R and 
Ox would be most welcome. A possible problem lies in the fact that,
although free for academic use, Ox is not open source. I too have 
been using Ox for computer-intensive programming. I also code some 
of my programs in C, but I always try Ox first, and in most cases 
it is efficient enough. For details, see

   programming environment. Journal of Applied Econometrics, 14, 

The latter contains a brief speed comparison between R and Ox.

Is there a good way to organize co-operation between R and Ox? 
(incidentally, Ox is at http://www.nuff.ox.ac.uk/Users/Doornik/)
