Thank you Duncan,
No I did not install R from cygwin. R is installed with windows 7.
I am calling R with a symbolic link from /usr/bin part of cygwin paths,
but my symbolic link is pointing to /usr/bin/R ->
Is it possible R is lost in forward paths recognized by cygwin?
You are right I need to test further. Thought someone would have had
this experience and a solution from previous work.
