Oops, forgot to copy the group.

Also, Math != Statistics

I'd prefer to see this in Statistics::R::*

(My GF is a Stat major and has made me QUITE aware that statisticians
are not necessarily matheticians, and vice versa)

I have no idea what your module does.

Is it a contribution to Perl ?
Does it allow you to Write R in perl?
if so, Inline::R
Does it provide access to R like functionality in perl?
if so, Statistics::R::<RfunctionalityRprovided>
Does it simply call the R interpretter and pass back the result to
if so,

Is it an R contribution to use perl like syntax in R?
if so, Rperl

If you're contributing to perl, and its not an inline R interpretter,
Please use the top level namespace of Statistics::R::*. I think that
will clear up any confusion as to the functionality of the module.

    Actually Statistics wasn't considered Math until few years ago.
    Now it's one of Math parts like Topology or something.

    ..The program fails and the power plant explodes, poisoning the earth
    and the sea. Famine and disease sweep the world. All die.
    Oh, the embarrassment.
