Re: [Rd] Fetching Warning Messages

Hi,

    I read the help page and saw that warnings() actually prints the warning message and stores warning in top-level variable "last.warning". So it seems that it is almost impossible to access last warning from java code. I got another solution of fetching warning messages by storing warning messages in a file and reading the file later. This can be done by using sink() command, but before that options(warn=1) must be set.
