I am wondering what the best way to interact with Bloomberg from
within R now. I am trying to download RBloomberg by following
instruction at the following website from findata.org. It turns out
that the instruction seems stale. I cannot locate the package.


> install.packages("RBloomberg", repos="http://r.findata.org")
Installing package(s) into ‘C:/Users/chibi/Documents/R/win-library/2.15’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
  package ‘RBloomberg’ is not available (for R version 2.15.1)

I am wondering the package no longer exists? If not, what other
choices do I have? Thank you.
