Dear list,
I encounter a strange problem: I hav R (1.6.1) installed on a notebook with 
winXP-Prof and a similar installation (same path names etc.) on a desktop 
computer with W98.
I use rcmd BATCH filename to display graphs from the data stored in filename.
With R on my notebook everything works fine. I have the same data, the same 
filenames, the same paths on th w98-computer. Here I see just a short 
flickering of the console window and that was it. 
Whe I copy the lines of the script in the console window of R, I get the 
following message:

... /Code: (snip)....
inp <- scan(file, sep=";", dec=",", list(0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0), skip = 
13, nlines = 58)
..../code(end) snip......
The error message:
Error in file(file, "r"): unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message:
cannot open file `c://Temp//TempFile.csv'

Does R behave different unter W98 than it does under XP?
Thanks for helping
