Since I'm getting no joy looking for an R implementation of the matlab
function csaps, can anybody advise me on porting csaps from Octave?

There is an octave implementation of csaps here:

This function calls external C function gcvspl located here:

Any C gurus out there care to opine on how hard this would be to port
to an external C function that R could call. I need to be able to
repeat results from csaps as part of a review and don't have access to
Matlab (or inclination to install and learn Octave).

Or, back to the original query, is there a way to mimic csaps in R? In
particular I need to be able to repeat an analysis with the the same
smoothing parameter (p) from csaps.

Please help!
