Thanks for the details. I’m new to R, and I’m not blaming anything here,
just that I’m still not clear what good it makes to keep this inconsistency
between R and Rscript. To me (and probably to many others from Perl/Python
etc.), this is shockingly weird. I can live with that, and I also want to
know why.
