Hi all,
I've a problem with R.
I'm using R in batch mode calling it trought php:
exec("C:\Program\R\R-2.7.1\bin\R.exe CMD BATCH blablabla\.txt");

It's function very well and I did a lot of interesting application.
In the webserver there is Bloomberg so I want download some time
series to analyse and so on.
If I launch the script in R it run and do all calculation but if I
call the script in batch mode in the output I see that the script stop
just when should start the connection with bloomberg:

Any ideas?
Maybe is a permission problem but I don't know which file I've to autorize.

Thanks a lot,
