[R] Question for svm function in e1071

The function is written in C++, so debugging the source code of the R 
svm() function will not really help. What you can do to make the C-code 
more verbose is the following:

- get the sources of e1071
- in the src/ directory, look up the svm.cpp file
- In line 37, there is:

#if 0
void info(char *fmt,...)


replace the first line by:

#if 1

- build and install the package again.



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?
