This particular call to exportData is probably equivalent in effect to
the R call:

	file = paste("C:/RAUDSL/S",
				".MU.PRICE.OUTPUT.txt", sep=""),
	append = FALSE)

as Barry sort of guesses, but in general exportData handles a wide
variety of data export facilities, including writing to odbc connexions,
so other uses of exportData would need the RODBC library in R and
functions like sqlSave or sqlUpdate.

write.table is also an S-PLUS function as well, but exportData is
generally a whole lot faster.

  Looks like perfectly good R to me.

  Except there's no exportData function. I assume this is an Splus 
function that R doesn't have, in which case telling us what it does 
might help. What does the Splus manual have to say about it?

I'm guessing R's write.table might be of use.

  Assuming its exportData that has you stuck - the other bits should 
allwork in R no problem, all it does is construct a path from parts of 
the MU.Cost object.
