[R] Sweave from Kile

I use Sweave on a Mac from my LaTeX editor and it requires a similar shell
script to typeset the document. Mine uses R it's self (instead of sh) and
looks like:

args <- commandArgs(T)
fname <- strsplit(args[1],'\\.')[[1]][1]


This script is run as so:

sweave /path/to/source.Rnw

It works pretty good, although I think I used: 

chmod 755 sweave

To make sure it would execute. You can also check ls -l to make sure you
have ownership of the file, if not you might need to hit it with chown.
