This is not really about R, is it? Few of us will have any idea what '#Rscript' is (it is not part of R), and the mention of JGR suggests that the third-party Java interface is involved (and that has its own mailing lists).

Nor would R-help be appropriate: please ask the authors of #Rscript for help (and see the R posting guide, which asked you to do that first).
