One possibility is to write the real time acquisition in tcl
and then the actual data processing in R.  The tcltk package
(which is included in the Windows distribution of R but is available
from CRAN on all distributions) can handle tasks running concurrently
with R.  See the svSocket and Rpad packages as examples
of this approach.
