Re: [R] running R-code outside of R

Thanks to all of the responders. It looks like dreams may come true after all :-)

The application is as follows. Respondents fill out a questionnaire that has been posted online. Output is in excel or text format. My client (typically working for a government agency that provides subsidies to SME businesses) then needs to send those data through the R code. The code produces all kinds of output: probabilities, tables, several figures, that together should be output in a pdf file. The client typically will neither know about R nor will want to know about the mechanics of the software that produces the output from the data. The best thing would be if the client could press a button on the website, which would then trigger the data processing and produce the report for the client. Alternatively, we could give them software that they could install on their own computers. Rpad or Rwui may just do the trick!

thanks, Roger
