Maybe you could think about transfering **script** to **function**.

In function your construction seems to be OK.

> if(is.na(VAR1)) VAR1 = 0
> if(is.na(VAR2)) VAR2 = "empty"
> cat("Input was: ", VAR1, " - ", VAR2, "\n")
> is executed till the end without typing anything on terminal :
> $ Rscript test.R
> Enter something ->
> Enter something else ->
> Input was:  0  -  empty
