It works also for me.
Since we are speaking about ESS+Rterm: a problem that I have
is that emacs+ESS seems to 'eat' the "first" request to show a
window inside Rterm, e.g., first time, I type
no graphics window appears(in my experience never, in others
experience almost never). From R
indicates the existence of a new graph. device but it is
Following "x11()"'s work.
Problem seems to be inside ESS (or NT-emacs) since
if I substitute Rterm with a 4 lines program which
only shows a modal message box (a "hallo, world" toy),
then I launch it with M-X R, no message box is shown,
emacs seems to hang until I kill the toy Rterm with
the task manager (this has been confirmed to me also by
For the forthcoming rw633, Brian and I have introduced
a work around but it is limited to the graphics device.
BTW, in the new version, interaction between emacs and
the graphics devices should be better since Rterm
'waits' for its input from ess in a separate thread.
Problem here was neither R nor ESS but the Windows
fgets/ReadFile which default behaviour seems to 'block'
the processing of other events.
