This is to announce a project to develop a GNU R package for the loading, processing and plotting of the contents of OMNeT++ output vector and scalar files. R is a powerful language and software environment for statistical analysis and graphics, and it is already being used by many in the OMNeT++ community despite the fact that there has been no straightforward way to read result files into R until now. We hope that this package can fill the gap, and will become a common base for result analysis scripts.

The “omnetpp” package is built upon the scavetool’s C++ library, with additional R code. A first, incomplete but already useful version is available for download, and an introductory tutorial has been written for it. We are looking for feedback as well as potential contributors. See the original announcement on the mailing list here.
