[R] sink() output to another directory

In my experience, any path that can be used at the shell prompt in a unix-alike can be used anywhere that R wants a file name.

[that is, when running R on a unix-alike system, and when pwd at the shell prompt returns the same value as getwd() in R]

Hopefully, that helps...

       Using linux (and perhaps other unices) ./ and / refer to the current
    directory. My code, to print to the sub-directory
