After giving some consideration to creating a Study Edition of the Bridge to R, we finally have put the package together. Starting on Friday, May 18th, you can request a download package for the Bridge to R SE to use to learn and experiment with using WPS.
The Bridge to R SE is limited to reading 1500 records from a WPS dataset and passing those observations on to R. This should be sufficient for testing your R programs running in WPS and to learn the language nuances of the Bridge to R.
For more information and download instructions, go to the Bridge to R SE page. There’s also a short video that shows what the Bridge to R can do for you.
