    using graphing capabilities from R language?

    has anyone ever experimented with the R statistical programming language
    and maybe using it as a library for VB to utilize?

    it has lots of built in graph capabilities, could be interesting to wire the two together

    https://www.harding.edu/fmccown/r/

    have not looked at runtime size or distribution requirements yet.

    "R is ‘GNU S’, a freely available language and environment for statistical computing and graphics which provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques: linear and nonlinear modelling, statistical tests, time series analysis, classification, clustering, etc."

    looks like at least one commercial ActiveX is based on it: http://www.statconn.com/

    as well as a free open source one RDCOMClient from Omegahat source and binary packages: https://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/

    I'm not sure it makes a lot of sense to host an entire scripting language along with its runtime and libraries if all you are after is its charting library.

    sorry wasnt specific enough, thought was to grab just the native graphing capabilities, didnt realize it was a scripting language though that makes it messier.

    they have be able to be used separately in a fairly straight forward manner though if there are are two activex spin offs
