using R from APL

Postby Ellis Morgan on Thu Aug 28, 2014 4:42 pm

At the APLwiki there are instructions for setting up your computer to use R from APL. this link gets you there.
http://aplwiki.com/r2apl?highlight=%28plot%29

The second step
Install R package rcproxy from http://cran.rakanu.com/bin/windows/cont ... _1.2-0.zip
fails for me with the message

the requested page 'bin/windows/contrib/2.8/rscproxy/_1.2-zip/' could not be found

The third step fails because it detects the proxy is not there.
Can anyone tell me what I should do to get started?

Thanks Ellis

Hi Ellis! Are you able to get your hands on a copy of Dyalog v14.0? It comes with an R interface with up-to-date installation instructions.

You can see the documentation for our R interface at http://docs.dyalog.com/latest/Dyalog%20APL%20R%20Interface%20Guide.pdf (Chapter 4 details Installation and Initialisation processes).


UPDATE: Link corrected - thanks for pointing this out Ray!

Ellis,

This package has been removed from CRAN, because of license problem.
A bit outdated version is available from
http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/ ... index.html

But the right way is to use rcom from
http://rcom.univie.ac.at/download.html

Thanks for notification. I will edit the wiki page.

This r2apl interface is very compact and easy to use. An OOP implementation
with additional features is shipping with v.14, as Morten mentioned above.

Regards,
Sasha.
