Description

It would be great if GDAL would start supporting R's "raster" format. R's "raster" format is a pretty straightforward flat binary/header format (very similar to ENVI's). The specifications are laid out in:

https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/raster/vignettes/rasterfile.pdf

I think this would be a nice addition, to allow more fluid work between R and the various gdal utilities.
