Functions for calling the statistical package R from within MATLAB.

closeR(handle)
function [status,msg] = closeR(handle)
%CLOSER Close connection to R server process
%
%   STATUS = CLOSER closes an R server process. STATUS is set to true if
%   the disconnection was successful, false otherwise.
%
%   [STATUS, MSG] = CLOSER returns any warning messages in the output MSG
%   and does not throw warnings.
%
%   CLOSER(HANDLE) closes the connection associated with handle HANDLE.
%
%   Example:
%      
%       status = openR;
%       % Run one of the R demos to test the connection.
%       evalR('demo("persp")');
%       % Close the connection.
%       closeR;
%
%   See also:  EVALR, GETRDATA, OPENR, PUTRDATA.
