[R] Ideas needed on automation of R

Maybe RPy (Python interface to R) could be of help in automating R? Logging
is then made very flexible using Python.

- http://rpy.sourceforge.net/
- http://gestalt-system.sourceforge.net/rpy_demo.html

If you combine it with py2exe you could possibly create an
windows-executable file that controls R. Then you can also use Win2K's
(scheduled) service functionality for running the application. (This is
untried though, but assumed to work).

Hope this helps.
