 Hi Chib

>>whether there is a way of handling the error you get in the
download.file() function

I think the function "try" will do this for you. That is, handle the error.

Have a look at ?try.

Hi Jim,
 
I just wanted to know if there is a function in R that can tell you
whether a file on the internet exists before you attempt to download it
or whether there is a way of handling the error you get in the
download.file() function without having it break a for loop with the
download error when it is part of that loop.
Kind Regards
Chib
