OK, I'm looking at Rserve. I get the impression that one needs to start a separate server, so it would be difficult to make this transparent to a user who installs my package and just wants to do an analysis with a GUI. It also appears that there is a separate binary install, at least on Windows, which would mean anyone using my package would need to install and run something separate. Is that accurate? mailing list Received on Wed 24 Oct 2012 - 20:37:22 GMT
