Dear Professor Brian D. Ripley,

Thank you for your reply. Yes, the speed is essential and data is large (gigabytes). I would like to learn from stats/src/model.c. Where can I find it?

Use data.frame() via an eval() call from C.

Or see the code is stats/src/model.c, as part of model.frame.default (but I would only do that if speed were essential).
