Re: [R] batch file execution

if we have set the path of R to the Environment Variables,things will be much convenient.

from Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables

Now we are the Environment Variables window, we will only need to pay attention to the lower window for System variables. Click on the Path Variable and then click on Edit... Add ;"path\of\R" to the path.(for me,the path of R is E:\Program Files\R\R-2.2.0\bin),note that each path is seperate by ";" and the path itself is not quoted by "".

1,run cmd (start--run and type cmd then hit enter); 2,in the Windows shell,type R CMD BATCH infile [outfile]
