Due to the complexity of installation, length of time and need for a Database restart, Teradata strongly recommends enlisting Teradata Customer Services to install the R Components and Packages. Please contact your Teradata representative to order this service.
In Vantage systems, R table operators require the following components:
  • The R interpreter
  • The Fortran compiler
  • The udfGPL library

To use R and run scripts with the ExecR table operator, your system administrator must install these components, and the DIP script DipRTblOp must be executed to create the ExecR table operator.

For more information about the R table operator and installing the R interpreter and the Fortran compiler, see the R Table Operators section in the Teradata Vantage™ - SQL External Routine Programming , B035-1147 .

For details about installing the udfGPL library and creating the ExecR table operator, see the Procedure to Enable R Functionality section in the Teradata Vantage™ - SQL External Routine Programming , B035-1147 .
