You can download a small Eclipse plug-in for R from my homepage:
http://www.walware.de/rplugin.zip . 

Simply unzip the file into the Eclipse directory. The plug-in requires
version 3.0 of Eclipse, it is not compatible with version 2.x. 

The plug-in provides syntax highlighting for R files and R documentations
(Rd files). Furthermore, editor functions concerning "matching brackets"
(highlighting, goto, select enclosing content on double click) are
implemented. Naturally, you can use the language independent IDE features
of Eclipse such as Local History, QuickDiff, CVS, ... 
You can configure the editors in the Eclipse preference dialog under

Best regards,
