R Host Language Interface

The rhli package offers complete access from R to the FIS MarketMap C-Toolkit ("FAME C-HLI"). The qoma.smuggler package offers higher level functionality when working with both R and FAME.

FAME is a fully integrated software and database management system from FIS that provides the following capabilities:

  • Time series and cross-sectional data management;
  • Financial calculation, data analysis, econometrics, and forecasting;
  • Table generation and detailed multicolor, presentation-quality report writing;
  • Multicolor, presentation-quality graphics;
  • "What-if" analysis;
  • Application development and structured programming;
  • Data transfer to and from other applications;
  • Tools for building customized graphical user interfaces.

Prerequisites

  • Install R Studio and successfully render an R Markdown page.
  • Install FAME and successfully enter and exit the FAME 4GL environment.

Installation and testing

From an R console,

  • install.packages("rhli")
  • source(paste(find.package("rhli"),"examples/HelloWorld.R",sep="/"))

From an R console inside R Studio,

  • file.edit(paste(find.package("rhli"),"examples/0-hello-rhli.Rmd",sep="/"))
    • from the editor, hit the Knitr button to render the R Markdown example

On first use, you will be directed to a website to obtain a QOMA_PIN which will entitle you to use the RHLI for the duration of your FAME license.
