[R] R script to start session (without automatically finishing)

Hello R friends

I am quite impressed by the power of R, I am using it only since some 
weeks now. But its visualizing capabilities are outstanding!

But one thing I couldn't solve: I have programs producing lots of data, 
most times 3D. In R I am using the library rgl to visualize nicely the 
3D data.

What I would like to do is to write R scipts which read in a data file 
and show me the 3D rgl plot. So that on the command line I just call my 
newly written R script, which pops up the rgl window. This session 
should run until I close the rgl window or press a button or something 
like this.

Currently, I can write R scripts
- using Rscript or
- http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/help/04/05/0500.html
But both approaches contain the problem that the rgl window pops up for 
just a moment, and then the program terminates.

Does any body has an idea, what to do? Help would be very appreciated.

Thank's a lot and ... Marry Christmas + Happy New Year
