[Rd] --quiet flag sets echo option to TRUE (PR#1083)
Fri, 31 Aug 2001 19:08:33 +0200 (MET DST)
The help for options says:
echo: logical. Only used in non-interactive mode, when it controls
whether input is echoed. Command-line options `--quiet' and
`--slave' set this initially to `FALSE'.
I don't think that this is correct for me.
Consider the following session:
mica|junk> cat test.R
cat("Why was this command echoed?\n")
mica|junk> R CMD BATCH --quiet test.R
mica|junk> cat test.Rout
> invisible(options(echo = TRUE))
> cat("Why was this command echoed?\n")
Why was this command echoed?
 1.13 0.11 1.20 0.00 0.00
Either using --quiet should set echo to FALSE (my personal preference) or the
documentation for options should be changed.
Apologies if I have misunderstood something here.
