How do I read a Systat file into R?  The  following email by Marc Schwartz
http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/help/04/06/1005.html deals with reading Systat on
a Linux machine.  I'm running R on Windows (precise version info below).  A colleague
sent me data in systat, a *.SYD file.  Do I have to ask the colleague to re-save the
data as Excel or text?

(I tried opening it in SPSS, and SPSS also does not seem to recognize an SYD file.)

Thanks for any info.
