Right, and data being collected in real time may need continuous/continual
(re-)analysis. That's the aim of non-blocking connections and the
upcoming readers and event handlers: you can always do the analysis on the
current data. People had in mind financial and sales feeds, but there are
lots of potential sciencitfic applications too. I don't think people are
envisaging R reading from the card, but they are envisaging the capture
software writing to a fifo and R reading from that fifo.
