About rpy2 ========== Rpy2 is a Python interface to the R language, mainly constitutued of a low-level interface (rpy2.rinterface) close to R's C-level API and a high-level interface with convenience classes and features (rpy2.robjects). The high-level interface is implemented using the low-level interface and other high-level interfaces are possible. The original rpy interface can be implemented with the low-level interface (rpy2.rpy_classic)
