Dear R users,

I know that this could easily be solved within a GIS-package, but 
sometimes it's more convenient to use R. So here's my question anyway...

Does anyone of you know about any R-functions/code that calculates the 
distance between a number points and a polygon or polyline? I have 
looked thru the different libraries that deals with spatial statistics 
but haven't found anything.
