You could have a master file that sources the rest:

source("A.R")
source("B.R")

or you could save the function in a workspace and just load it back in; however, at some point I would move that all to a package. I typically will create a package for myself even if I have no intention of distributing it since it nicely puts together all the source and documentation and the checking tools are helpful to improve the QA.

Its a bit of work to figure it all out the first time but once you are over that hump its worth it.
