Attached are some functions that I wrote to read and write shapefiles and
dbfs easily from within R.  You do not need any additional libraries or C
code.  I am still working out a few bugs but I have tested it with quite a
few different files and it seems to be working pretty well.  There is little
documentation at this point though.  I'd appreciate any comments about the
code.  Thanks.
