I am sure the authors will accept a patch to the documentation too.

Are you looking for system() or eval()?

Yes. I am not aware of generic Redis queue processor for R. Should just be a few commands to get started. The doRedis example can give you ideas -- just "LPOP" and then execute, or something similar.

No, doRedis is particular to the foreach parallel framework. I would use rredis as I had suggested earlier.

And as you asked: we also just released the RcppRedis package which should have Windows binaries in a few days, hopefully. But it has a much narrower scope.

You probably should just read the documentation of the rredis package but the "tl;dr" version is that it is the main Redis package for R.

Same here. I work in the industry too, and I can assure you that C# is not a growing trend over where I work (besides surviving for GUIs). But we all have our preferences, and if you like it, good for you. That case is closed, now let's see how you can best access something already provided in R.

I can't stop giggling about your claim that everybody uses C# now. Everywhere I look C# has been abandoned for anything but GUIs, but beauty is as always in eye of the beholder.

You are barking up the wrong tree. I don't use either C# or Windows, so I have not bone in this fight -- my money is on C++ with R on Linux. But as you asked, yes, thanks, between Linux and Windows Rserve works fine, modulo the lack of fork() in Windows meaning that there can be only one connection.

Fair enough. We use Rserve at work to connect to a Windows machine running a particular service which can run only on Windows. You have the inverse, and I would like into Windows clients for Rserve. There are a few around.

Don't take it all that personally. It is essentially a wager; let's revisit when the bounty is up. Maybe you will have someone pointing you to something; my money is still on that being rather unlikely.

There is a saying that "wishing alone does not make it so" and my post basically paraphrased it.

You can offer as much of a bounty as you want; the fact remains is that the code you want is there in R so if I were you I'd look into RServe or other means to accessing R remotely if you really insist on sticking to C#/CLR/Windoze.
