The "R Package" of Casgrain & Legendre is not an R package, but it is
an independent, compiled software package. Its name, R, comes from
golden VAX/VMS (or perhaps even PDP!) days, and pre-dates the R we know
as R. It seems that Pierre Legendre now uses our R in teaching, at
least in some parts, so it may be that some of the methods will be
ported to our R. Otherwise you must use his (or their) R, which is
freely available (and I think, even GPL'ed now).
For the Casgrain-Legendre R, see
http://www.fas.umontreal.ca/BIOL/legendre/. Pierre Legendre explained
somewhere the naming history, but I can't find it in his (or
Casgrain's) web pages. However, his package was called R long before
Ihaka & Gentleman introduced their R.
