Ok. Unfortunately I work on a Mac OS X at home (I have access to  
Windows, MS DevStudio
at work but want to keep work and hobby separate). I do work with  
Xcode (have to
delve deeper in to Cocoa still though). Can integration also be done  
on Mac OS X?
If I understood correctly you go the COM route for integration on  

CrystalSpace is a 3d engine that has a COM simulation layer for Unix- 
style platforms
I think (last time I looked was a few years back). It would  
essentially be a thin layer
to implementations of abstract classes.

I did download R for Mac OS X. It is quite a nice package! I wish I  
had looked at it earlier.
You did a very good job on the user interface.

I agree!

I am working on a Java port at the moment. I will try to make some  
time later this evening
or perhaps somewhere this week.
