[R] Excel *.xls files, RODBC

There is another way to read and write excel files using jakarta POI.
Hopefully, I'll have a package available in a week or so.  I have a working
example of writing a matrix from R to excel, but I haven't finished the read
excel portion of the code.  If anyone wants to give it a spin, contact me
off list and I'll send a copy.

Success!  Tobias Verbeke's kind suggestion of read.xls from the gdata
package (from the gregmisc bundle) works like a charm. It's perl based, so
no problema on Linux.

The R community is wonderful!
