RVowpalWabbit: R Interface to the Vowpal Wabbit

The 'Vowpal Wabbit' project is a fast out-of-core learning system sponsored by Microsoft Research (having started at Yahoo! Research) and written by John Langford along with a number of contributors. This R package does not include the distributed computing implementation of the cluster/ directory of the upstream sources. Use of the software as a network service is also not directly supported as the aim is a simpler direct call from R for validation and comparison. Note that this package contains an embedded older version of 'Vowpal Wabbit'. The package 'rvw' at the GitHub repo <https://github.com/eddelbuettel/rvw> can provide an alternative using an external 'Vowpal Wabbit' library installation.
