   My apologies to everyone for not seeing a typo further in the script.

   I had the path to the appropriate directory in the sink() function and the
print() function had only the command as above. Except for one dataframe. In
that one I had stuck a '/' in front of the summary() function and that
caused the problem.

   I just found an R equivalent to lint to find such syntactical errors before I
embarrass myself again. Has anyone used lintr from github? I will definitely
start using this on my scripts.

Mea culpa,
