[R] running R-code outside of R

      If you want to hide the fact that you are using R -- especially if 
you charge people for your software that uses R clandestinely -- that's 
a violation of the license (GPL).  I doubt if anyone associated with R 
would bother with a lawsuit, but a competitor who offers related 
software might. 

      Best Wishes,
