I use a open source Java program called Weka. There is a module for R called Rweka which allows me to call routines (algorithms) in Weka from within R.
I do not really understand programming that well but I want to build a program which downloads data from a file on the web and then runs an algorithm in Weka (probably by calling it in R) and have this run automatically at a certain time every day and write the result to another file (hopefully on the web but possibly just a local file).
How do I organize this? I am running Windows 7. Should I use a scheduled event to run it every day? And how to I call the R program? Do I need to have R running at all times? I guess there is not a way to to create an executable file (I read that R is an interpreted language and that this means you cannot make executables).
By the way, I did find this but I am not sure if it is relevant
Any guidelines/suggestions are gratefully accepted.
