Thanks to all of the individuals who responded to my question regarding
cross-platform compatibility with R.
My problem turned out to be incompatible versions of R on two machines.
I was able to upgrade to consistent
versions of R on my linux and OSX boxes and transfer files and
directories directly from one machine to another
using compressed tar archives.
To summarize the responses, the following methods can be used to
transfer files by ftp or physical media between
R installs on different machines and OS systems:
1. tar and compress files
2. Use the R dump and source commands
3. Use the R save and load commands
