Hi, All;

I have a question. In R, what is the best way to make R idle for a while and try something again later? For example, suppose there is an R job which accesses a file that may be shared with other active jobs. So when the file is being accessed by other job, your job will not be able to access the file and your job will crash because of that. To avoid this, you want your job to try to access the file repeatedly with some time interval, say every 10 seconds or something like that. Which is the best way to do this in R?

Thanks in advance,
