[Rd] Processing files with AlphaX and R 2.0.1

I am a volunteer developer for the text editor AlphaX

<http://alphatcl.sourceforge.net/wikit/>

and the author/maintainer of its "S+/R" mode. We recently received this note from a user:

>>>>>>>>

I am trying to process files written and edited in AlphaXb16 through R v2.0.1. This has worked previously under the last version of AlphaX and R 1.9.1.

Now when I select 'Process File' under the S+/R menu, the program switches to R and the file is pasted into a new edit window in R, rather than the contents being processed by R, which is what happened with earlier versions.

I am not able to figure out how to get the previous, desirable behavior back. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

>>>>>>>>

AlphaX's "Process File" command uses a very generic AppleEvent to send and "open" the file in R, using the "TclAE" API created by Jon Guyer.

<http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/tclae/>

This API does allow for more sophisticated AppleEvents to be constructed and passed on. I've searched the Release Notes announcements available for R 2.0.0 and R 2.0.1

<https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-announce/2004/000792.html> <https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-announce/2004/000795.html>

but I don't see any mention of how inter-application protocols might have changed in version 2.x of R. If there is a better place for me to look, please send along that url. Or (even better) if there is some documentation for AE interactions, I'll take a look at that as well.

cheers,

Craig Barton Upright
