Re: [R] How to *completely* stop a script after stop()?

Put an open brace in the first line of your file and a close brace in the last line.

I encourage people with scripts long enough that this is a problem to divide up their work into functions that a shorter script calls. (This is akin to UCSD Pascal on the Osbourne II that refused to deal with a function that could not fit onto the tiny screen -- it forced you do divide things up into small understandable chunks of work.)
