This is the first version on R-forge. There used to be a SciViews bundle that contained svMisc, svSocket, svGUI, ..., but bundles are obsolete now. The new SciViews package plays a similar role as the bundle, i.e., it is a convenient way to install all SciViews-R packages with one instruction:

install.packages("SciViews", dependencies = TRUE).

It now plays also other roles: (1) to load all SciViews requirements with a single instruction:


(2) To make sure to reconfigure the socket server properly (that is, with the same configuration as latest one), (3) To provides a series of R functions that ease learning of R through the use of the R reference toolbox in Komodo Edit.
