in reply to Re: Entire Results from R
in thread Entire Results from R

++haukex I put together a short script to confirm that your solution works (I was curious about Statistics::R since I had not used it before). This code,
#!/usr/bin/env perl use Statistics::R; use Data::Dumper; # Create a communication bridge with R and start R my $R = Statistics::R->new(); $R->set( 'data', [ "2016-03-15 13", "2016-03-16 23", "2016-03-17 06", "2016-03-18 15", "2016-03-19 08", "2016-03-20 21" ] ); $R->run( q`datevec <- strptime(data,"%Y-%m-%d %H")` ); $R->run( q`xx <- difftime(datevec[-length(datevec)],datevec[-1],units= +"hours")` ); @Rres = $R->get('xx'); print Dumper(\@Rres); exit;
Gives this output,
$VAR1 = [ [ '[1]', '-34', '-7', '-33', '-17', '-37' ] ];
