SciCom also allows for implementing R scripts in a “language” that is just like Ruby, so that the developer does not need to know that she is actually writing an R script. All R methods are accessible through an R namespace. As can be seen from these examples, R methods can be accessed through the R namespace in SciCom, so, R method ‘seq’ is called in SciCom as ‘R.seq’. R methods that are applied on objects can be called in two ways, either using the R namespace as in ‘R.factor’ or directly on the object, as in this case we did ‘cmonth.factor’. This last example shows how SciCom allows method chaining, which is not possible in an R script.
