Forgive me if this isn't the correct forum for these comments but:
text output on the mac is abysmally slow. If I inadvertently ask R to echo a
100x100 matrix, it takes so long to display that I generally have to leave the
room and go do something else for awhile. I've tried to break it, (ctrl-c,
cmd-.) but there doesn't seem to be an implemented break sequence (I noticed
that everything else stops too, my mp3 player stops playing music, etc). I also
notice that the longer the output gets, the slower it goes.
