I am looking for an accomplished R programmer in this "proof of concept" initial project. This project provides a fabtastic opportunity for an experienced R programmer to quickly earn themselves a good rating. The purpose of this project therefore is twofold: 1). To provide a "proof of concept" R script which I can test on my machine. 2). To hopefully discover an experienced R programmer that I can work with on subsequent R based projects. The requirement for this project is laid out below: REQUIREMENT ============ A simple R script that shows using the RCurl package in a script to request data from a URL and scan the received data into an R table. The data received from the URL will be in tabular form, and will be plain ASCII but compressed to save on bandwidth. The data is likely to be several hundreds of thousands of rows long and will thus need to be continually added to table until all of the data is received. Note: This is a relatively trivial project that should take an experienced R programmer not very long to accomplish. part of the reason I posted this project was to find an R programmer who can help with other R related projects (from EDA to scripts to generate surface plots etc). Documentation for the RCurl package can be found here: [url removed, login to view]
