[sorry, but this is a re-post - I forgot to set the subject line
the first time around]
I would like to access an Oracle database running on Solaris from
R on my linux desktop. I have had a look at the R Data Import/Export
manual, and downloaded RODBC and unixODBC, but I am still quite confused
about how to proceed. It appears to me that I still need to get an Oracle
ODBC driver, and the only one I can find is from Easysoft for 880 euros,
which is not available for this project.
Is there any free software which will enable R on linux to talk to Oracle
on Solaris (both reading and writing data) ?
My R setup is as follows:
system i386, linux-gnu
