Re: [R] Adding .R to source file keeps R from reading it?

Hmm... sounds like you're on Windows and have the Explorer setup such that it is hiding file extensions. You can try to use list.files() from R to see if the files actually have file extension.

If this is your problem, open My Computer -> Tools -> Folder Options... and select tab View. Make sure that "Hide extensions for known file types" is *NOT* selected.
