There's an (experimental I think) package `odesolve'

    Package: odesolve
    Version: 0.5-2
    Date: 2000/04/19
    Title: Solvers for Ordinary Differential Equations
    Author: R. Woodrow Setzer <setzer.woodrow at epa.gov>
    Depends: R (>= 1.0.0)
    Description: This package provides an interface for ODE solvers lsoda,
      lsodar, ddassl, ddslrt.  ODEs are expressed as R functions.
    License: Public Domain

of which I don't have an URL ready.


For an ODEPACK interface, please consider interfacing to the GSL

              GSL -- The GNU Scientific Library 

(which has a C version of odepack with it's own gsl-interface)

This would be great to have  (and we could use `it' for numerical
integration, too; it has  QUADPACK too...)

Both these have been on my todo list for many months, but unfortunately
never come close to the top of that list.... ;-(
