XMLRPC_0.3-0.tar.gz (21 March 2013)

This package provides an implementation of XML-RPC, a relatively simple remote procedure call mechanism that uses HTTP and XML. This can be used for communicating between processes on a single machine or for accessing Web services from within R.

One illustration of this package is the RUbigraph package that sends instructions from R to an Ubigraph server running on the same or a different machine and which draws a dynamic, interactive graph.

The Software

The primary (and only) function is xml.rpc and this is used to make a method call and specify zero or more arguments. There are numerous internal functions that implement the details of marshalling objects between the both sides of the interface.
