Excellent work!
I wonder if this could be made more portable (e.g., it depends on perl, + R
being on a tty terminal, which is not always the case).

I'll try to look at it and see if I can port it so it works on windows.
But the
current communication method I use there are just the clipboard, not sure if
it'll be possible.

Any alternative ways of sending info both ways from R to any open
process (vim)
in windows?

I have, and like, perl; the only think that is missing is the tty support on
windows (I think!)
