Downloading a .csv through a .jsp url with variable parameters - R code or package?
Dear R experts,
where y = year, m = month and d=day. Accessing the link gives you the .csv for that date. I want to download the whole time series day by day say from y = 2000 to 2010 into an R dataset. Any idea how to do that through R code?

So i realized putting this
raw.untr <- as.data.frame(read.csv(file='.......jsp?y=2008&m=09&d=30', header = TRUE, as.is = TRUE))
reads the file prefectly, so i was wondering how can i create a set of dataframes each with observations for one day (say for 3 years with 250 days of data each year = 750 datasets) ? And in each loop of a cycle the text string in the url would change to reflect the new date, say from y=2008&m=09&d=30 to y=2008&m=09&d=31?
Any help would be great, i somewhat expected more of a reaction given how vibrant R community is,
