New way to create REngine instance?

Jul 15, 2011 at 6:36 PM


I needed to get around the same issue as these guys:


So I downloaded the lastest source drop. Now I am getting messages that REngine.CreateInstance has been obsoleted. What is the new way to instantiate the REngine?


Thanks, and keep up the good work!

OK, I have changed from:

args = Array[str](["-q"])

r = RDotNet.REngine.CreateInstance("RDotNet", args)



r = RDoptNet.REngine.CreateInstance("RDotNet", output=RDotNet.REngine.OutputMode.Quiet)


(I am using IronPython - apologies to you C# folks)

R.NET seems happy now. Is there a way to specify the R_HOME and R_LIBS directories?

Hi, I am new to, and found it very userful for .net users to embed R in their programs. Could anyone tell me what are the differences between the quiet mode and the normal mode? I am a user. Please tell me how to set the quiet mode in And I found it very slow to terminate the program in the debug mode in What was wrong? Thank a lot!
