copy the URL into the browser URL field). If the file you want won't load
straight into the application program (due to log filename for example),
save the file to disk first. 

This documentation should give sufficient information for developing
routines for dynamic data exchange in an application program interface (I

2. Regarding using netCDF as an intermediate format between matlab 
and R, I investigated  the URL that Brian Ripley found and followed 
download instructions for the NetCDF Toolbox for Matlab 

However in searching CRAN Package sources as well as StatLib, I did
