RServe: Getting Started

Rserve is a server which allows other programs to use the facilities of R via TCP/IP.


Since Rserve gets installed to system folders, you need to do the install as the root user.

# Become root.
$ sudo su
# Run R as root.
$ R
> install.packages("Rserve")


To launch as a daemon.

$ R CMD Rserve

To launch in debug mode.

$ R CMD Rserve.dbg
