[R] R-excel

I am running R 2.5.1 using Mac OSX 10.4.10. "xlsReadWrite" is a Windows
binary. Instead, install and load packages: (1) "gtools":(2) "gdata". These
are both Windows and Mac binaries. "gdata" depends on "gtools", so be sure
to load "gtools" first or set the installation depends parameters. Then you
can use "read.xls".  Thus, in Mac: "data<-read.xls("/Users/your
name/Documents/data.xls",sheet=1). For Windows, substitute the appropriate
filepath and file name in the first argument of "read.xls": e.g.,
"data<-read.xls("A:/filename.xls",sheet-1)". Thanks to correspondents for
their advice; but I hope that this may alleviate some of the frustration
(referred to in the R Import/Export Manual) associated with dealing with
EXCEL files in R.
