thank you so much for your proposal. I will cetainly one day come to you
and get some help.
For now, I need to practice more my Latex. My set up is Texlive+Texmaker
on a Linux box. Then, I need a litle more work on the R side, even if I
feel a litle bit more comfortable writing small scripts with R to deal
with data frames.
I have the ambitious (maybe too) to sell to small/medium hedge fund
automated reports in high quality (not the kind made with a mix of Excel
and Word). I will need many months to set up this activity, if I manage
to achieve it.

I am happy to see I can rely on some support. This is this kind of help
which made me a Linux, R lover. Even if a newby, with work + help from
the community, you can do it.

Best regards.
