[R] Export to .txt

Look at the txtStart function in the TeachingDemos package.  It works like sink but also includes commands as well as output.  Though I have never tried it with browser() (and it does not always include the results of errors).

Another option in to use some type of editor that links with R such as emacs/ESS or tinn-R (or other) and then save the entire transcript.

Subject: [R] Export to .txt


I would like to export all my workspace (even with the evaluation of
commands) to the text file. I know about the sink() function but it doesnt
work as I would like. My R-function looks like this: there are instructions
for user displayed by cat() command and browser() commands for fulfilling
them. While using the sink() command the instructions dont display :(
Can anyone help me with a equivalent command to File - Save to file...

Thank you very much.
