Thanks, that's a really neat mechanism, ( I especially like the note to vim,
which will save all my scripts having to end .R )

Is there any way to get at the command line and stdio though?

With littler I can do things like:

#!/usr/bin/env r


so that I can write unix-style filters.

Cheers, John.
