See the validate* functions in the Design package.

Note that some simulations (see http://biostat.mc.vanderbilt.edu/rms) 
indicate that the advantages of .632 and .632+ over the ordinary 
bootstrap are highly dependent on the choice of the accuracy measure 
being validated.  The bootstrap variants seem to have advantages mainly 
if an improper, inefficient, discontinuous scoring rule such as the 
percent classified correct is used.
