How to run more than one script from the console or from the windows task scheduler.
There is nothing preventing you from running several scripts from different consoles.
Create an R script with the code:
message("Will sleep...") Sys.sleep(20) message("Slept!")
and save it as
sleep.R. Then, open two
cd to go into the directory with the script, and, in each cmd, call the R script with:
You can start the same script on the second terminal before the first has finished running, there is nothing preventing you to do that. It will just create 2 R sessions, as you can see in the Task Manager:
If the question is about starting the script and getting back control in the same terminal, you want to run it in the background. Indeed, in a single console, you can start:
start /b Rscript.exe sleep.R
You get the message "Will sleep...", you can immediately start a second, identical, command, and you will get the resulting "Slept!" for both scripts at the end.
I have no experience with the Task Scheduler, but I expect these to work as well in this context.
Note: it appears the script will be interrupted if you log off after starting it from the console, the Task Scheduler may be a workaround.
