[R] running R-code outside of R

Thanks to all of the responders. It looks like dreams may come true 
after all :-)

The application is as follows. Respondents fill out a questionnaire that 
has been posted online. Output is in excel or text format. My client 
(typically working for a government agency that provides subsidies to 
SME businesses) then needs to send those data through the R code. The 
code produces all kinds of output: probabilities, tables, several 
figures, that together should be output in a pdf file. The client 
typically will neither know about R nor will want to know about the 
mechanics of the software that produces the output from the data.
The best thing would be if the client could press a button on the 
website, which would then trigger the data processing and produce the 
report for the client. Alternatively, we could give them software that 
they could install on their own computers. Rpad or Rwui may just do the 

thanks, Roger
