This is the Debian GNU/Linux r-cran-foreign package of foreign, a
collection of functions to read / write data stored by other
statistical systems.  Foreign was written by T. Lumley, D. Bates,
and S. DebRoy.

This package was created by Dirk Eddelbuettel <edd@debian.org>.
The sources were downloaded from 
	http://cran.us.r-project.org/src/contrib/
and are also included in the (large) source tar archive of R itself at
	http://cran.us.r-project.org/src/base/

The package was renamed from its upstream name 'foreign' to 'r-cran-foreign'
to fit the pattern of CRAN (and non-CRAN) packages for R.
