RSOURCE: Stata module to run R from inside Stata using an R source file


  • Roger Newson

    () (National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London)


The program rsource runs the Rterm command of R from inside Stata, using an R source file, if R is installed on the user's system. The output and/or the source file can be listed to the Stata log file and/or to the Stata Results window in an interactive Stata session. If the R directory on the user's system is not on the user's default path, then the user must set the global macro Rterm_path to contain the path for the Rterm command, possibly in the file (see on-line help for details).
