During the last meeting in Exeter in December 2014, we discussed the option of using R in combination with CLIMSOFT. I have found some options to run R in VB.NET
One option and maybe the best option is the use of R.Net (http://rdotnet.codeplex.com/). It seems very simple to include R code into the new CLIMSOFT version.
I could be good to discuss this option before the workshop in Reading.
