Hi all,
I have a local server insalled on my system and have to start that from within my R function.

here is how I start it:

cmd<-"sh start-server.sh"

system(cmd, wait=FALSE)

My function has to start the server and proceed with further steps. The server starts but the further steps of the program are not executed.The cursor keeps waiting after the server is started.

i tried removing the wait=FALSE, but it still keeps waiting.

I also tried putting the start-server in a separate function and my further script in a separate function and then run them together, but it still waits. The transition from the start of server to next step is not happening.

Please help. I have been stuck on this for quite some time now.
