I need to convert dbf/csv data to an ESRI shape file consisting of 200,000
polylines in R.  I used the package "shapefiles" that can create small shape
files.  I found it takes too much time for create 200,000 polylines.  I
checked the source codes and found R loop is used.  I guess it may be the

I tried some other software and found the procedure just takes a few seconds
but I want to do the work in R. Is there a package using compiled codes so
that this work can be done more efficiently?   Thanks a lot for your
precious information!
