[R] Yield to maturity calculation - bndyield equivalent of MATLAB in R

I have the MATLAB code pasted below that calculates yields to maturity.

IRR = zeros(length(c),length(M))

The ith row and jth column is the price of the bond with coupon c(i)
and maturity M(j).

for i = 1:3
    for j = 1:3
        if j == 1
            IRR(i,j) =
        elseif j == 2
            IRR(i,j) =
        elseif j == 3
            IRR(i,j) =

mPricecon represents the prices calculated from zero coupon bond
prices, and c_org represents the coupon payments. This then gives IRR.

I need to convert this MATLAB code to R code, and ideally one to one.
The problem is that bndyield is a MATLAB function and there does not
seem be an exact equivalent in R. What is the best way to go?
