There was a question in R forum very long time back.. on how to protect R Script files from inadvertent editing by users. There is a way to do this from within R, atleast in Windows XP I have tried this and it certainly works , The method is very different from the OS based folder protection route, however making available such a method in the open forum would only kill the very spirit of R. But if someone is able to convince me the genuineness of his reasons to achieve such a purpose, I might decide to provide selective service to achieve the same.
