  I am using some python code to execute small R code snippets.
  I would like to save the messages output to the screen when R is executed.
  However, I will just save the opening message a zillion times since many
thousands of little snippets will be executed.
  Does anyone how to omit the opening message printed by R when it first
  In case, you don't know what opening message I am talking about, see
example below.
The opening message:
R version 2.8.1 (2008-12-22)
