in reply to Calling R in perl

OK. Statistics::R seens to be working fine now

I just ignores the error message in the test and went ahead with the installation, just as was told me in here:

But still I have two problems (that I hope are the last ones).

First of all, when I try to pass my table from perl to R with the comand "$R -> set( 'table', \@lines );", it returns this error:

Problem running this R command: g1 <- table[, 3]; Got the error: wrong number of dimmensions

I scaped that creating an output file from perl (named "data_freq.txt.out" and telling R to import from that. But this doesnt seens the right way to do it.

Second. When I try to return a table from R to perl, importing it to an array (in "my @results1 = $R->get('g1');"), I would like all the values in the table to be passed to this array (@results1). So I could shift and pop values from that array to use in other perl things (Mostly to create an nice output file)

Instead, what I get is an array with a single element that is some kind of octodecimal value (I guess)

How can I fix that?

Someone already told me to use "$results1" instead of "@results1". But that gives me the same output. Besides, it will create an scalar and that is not what I want

NOTE: "my $media = $R->get('meang1');" do work! I guess thats is because its a single value.

HERE are my codes, wich I call with "./ data_freq.txt"

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Statistics::R; my @lines; my $line; my $csv_check = shift @ARGV; #Mark for csv check----- @ARGV = $csv_check; while ( defined( $line = <> ) ) { push @lines, $line; } shift @lines; save_array_output(@lines, ".out"); print "\@lines = \n @lines "; my $R = Statistics::R->new() ; $R->startR ; $R->run('library(genetics);'); $R->run('setwd("/home/user/tests/");'); #$R->set( 'table', \@lines ); $R->run('table <- read.table("/home/user/tests/data_freq.txt.out");'); $R->run('g1 <- table[, 3];'); $R->run('meang1 <- mean(g1)'); $R->run('print(meang1);'); $R->run('write.table(g1, "g1.txt");'); $R->run('write.table(meang1, "meang1.txt");'); my $media = $R->get('meang1'); my $results1 = $R->get('g1'); print "\$results1 = ", $results1, "\n"; print "\$media = ", $media, "\n"; $R->stopR() ; #----------------------------------------------- sub save_array_output { @lines = @_; my $mid_name = pop @lines; my $output_name = $csv_check.$mid_name; open(MYOUTFILE, ">:utf8", $output_name); # Open output file print MYOUTFILE "@lines \n"; close(MYOUTFILE); # Close output file }
