Dear R users,

  I downloaded an ess-5.2.2 package and hope to use emacs as
front to work with R.  I modified ~/.emacs and start R by
M-x R.   But I found when I quited  the R session, it still asked me to
save the work space or not.  I added inferior-R-args with
"--save" args.  But it seemed that it had no effect.   Can
you tell me how to pass the arguments other than
--no-readline to R.  Thanks a lot.
Below is the part for ess settings.

    (setq load-path (cons "~/.emacs.d/lisp/ess-5.2.2/lisp" load-path))
    (require 'ess-site)
    (setq ess-default-style  "GNU")
    (setq inferior-ess-program "R")
    (setq inferior-R-program-name "~/.local/bin/R")	  ; unix systems
    (setq inferior-R-args "--save --no-readline")
    (setq ess-pre-run-hook
      '((lambda ()  (setq ess-directory "~/study/R/")
                    (setq ess-ask-for-ess-directory nil)

                       Yours  Sincerely
