adschai : this isn't particularly helpful but when I am using a
function from a package called xxx that
I have little knowledge about, I take the source as is and create my own
function out of
It called my.xxx and then put print statements
Inside it to see what's going on. This is probably an extremely kludgy
way of dealing with that problem
But it is a way. I'm not R expert enough to know any other way but I
Be interested if you get a better private reply.

Subject: [R] Question for svm function in e1071


Sorry that I have many questions today. I am using svm function on about
180,000 points of training set. It takes very long time to run. However,
I would like it to spit out something to make sure that the run is not
dead in between.  Would you please suggest anyway to do so? 

And is there anyway to speed up the performance of this svm function?
Thank you.
