Subject: [R] New to R

I am newly subscribed to r-project.

I have recently plunged into R on a totally self-taught basis (may not have been the smartest decision!)

I am attempting to download tickers as a time series. I can successfully create RDA files but I want to convert them to CVS. Following is the code I have created so far.

if (!require(BatchGetSymbols)) install.packages('BatchGetSymbols')


tickers <- c('SPY','VCR', 'RPG')

first.date<http://first.date> <- Sys.Date()-365

last.date<http://last.date> <- Sys.Date<http://Sys.Date>

l.out <- BatchGetSymbols(tickers = tickers,

first.date<http://first.date> = first.date<http://first.date>,

last.date<http://last.date> = last.date<http://last.date>,

cache.folder = file.path("c://Users/Owner/Documents/R",

+ 'BGS_Cache') )



I can print(l.out) and see that it contains all the data, but it is not a data.frame

Can anyone help with creating a data.frame and then converting to CSV?

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
