You can use ESS and either XEmacs 21.0 (currently wrapping up beta) or
NTEmacs, or Emacs(FSF) to edit files.  

IF the mingwin(?) or cygwin versions of R allow for command-line
prompts rather than working within a text-widget thing, then you might
be able to get it to work with some kind of process control.  I really
don't know (cc'd to R-devel and ess-help to see if anyone has this

One possible solution is to run Linux, of course; but it might not be

XLispStat might be workable with _lots_ of work to the emacs hacks
found on Brian Ripley's Windows for Splus World-Wide-Web page.  I've
been working on other aspects of ESS recently, and havn't made the
integration yet, sigh...  (again, if any one wants to give me a
reasonably fast W95/NT box to play with :-)....

Comments from others more than welcome!
