A new version of X2R has just been uploaded to CRAN.  It should be 
available at mirrors within a few days.

This contains revisions to the For2R component to fix a bug in which 
data frames were not written correctly if the user did not pass row labels.

The new version is supplied as files X2R.zip and X2R.tar.gz, which are 
equivalent.  The version can be identified from the contents of file 
"VersionInfo.txt" in the root of each archive.  The new version is dated 
March 1, 2007.


 From the original announcement:

X2R is composed of three related software libraries: C2R,  ADMB2R, and 
For2R (together, X2R). Each contains output routines to simplify 
transfer of complicated data structures from models written in a 
compiled language to R.  The user's data can be written as a structured 
ASCII file which, when read by R (note 1) with a single dget() function 
call, will become an R data object of type list. The list, may contain 
components such as data frames, matrices, and other lists.

These are NOT R packages; rather they are subroutine libraries to be 
used with programmers' own modeling codes.  Limited testing indicates 
that they are compatible with S-PLUS, as well (note 1, note 2).

Languages supported are Fortran 95 (with For2R), C and C++ (with C2R) 
and AD Model Builder (with ADMB2R) (note 1, note 3).  Source code and 
users' manuals are supplied.

This work has been tested and used by the authors. However, any software 
may contain bugs, and these works are classified by NOAA as  
"Experimental Products."  Although the software is supplied with no 
warranty whatsoever, bug reports, suggestions, and extensions are 
solicited (send to Prager or Martin).  The authors will attempt to fix 
all bugs promptly and to add requested features.

Software is now available at CRAN,  http://cran.r-project.org/ .  Look 
under "Software / Other" for the current X2R distribution.
