No problem with socketConnection and read.table. I want to read a line
at a time but when I use
read.table (socketConnection) then it waits till client socket
connection is closed; and entire data comes in as one big chunk. I am
reading a line at a time since data will be available after every few
seconds and I can process and obtain results of already generated
Should I use some (eof) character in data so that read.table returns
without client closing socket connection and I can read a line too?
Thanks for your time sir(s).
