Hi all,

I am trying to get shell variable(s) into my R script  in Linux . How
do I get them?

my shell script is
       Name=Alex; export Name
       Age=25; export Age

How do get the Name and Age variables in my R script?

My R script is

print " Your Name is $Name and  you are $Age  years old"

My another shell script that call the R script is

         source  t1.sh
         Rscript test.R
So by running this script  ./test.sh

I want get:  Your Name is Alex and  you are 25  years old

I can define those variables in R  but that is not my intention.

Thank you in advance
