utilities to ease manipulation of R packages using rpy2.
The package rtools provides utilities that are of general usage for developing software that use the RPy2 package. This is not a replacement of RPy2 but rather an addon to simplify the life of developers who are using R packages from Python.
# check version of the R package 'base' import rtools rbase = rtools.RPackage('base') rbase.version
