Re: [R] R grahics: Save as hangs computer

Hello,

thanks for the advice. I was aware that the version was out of date and your message prompted me to finally upgrade to the latest version 2.4.1. Unfortunately, running R under Emacs ESS, the problem I described earlier persists.

I have also tried the Save as option under the standard RGui interface and this worked in both the old and the new versions of R, 2.3.0 and 2.4.1 respectively. The problem seems to be associated with Emacs ESS. However I don't have a clue where to start in order to find a solution.

In general I quite like using Emacs ESS. It provides syntax highlighting and this makes scripts far easier to read than with the standard editor that comes with RGui.

I would be grateful for any further hints from someone who has encountered similar problems in running R 2.4.1 through Emacs ESS 5.3.3 under Windows 2000.

Regards

Karl

That version is out of date. Could you please update to the current version (2.4.1), and see if the problem persists? If so, could you please try it when running Rterm or Rgui on its own, rather than running under Emacs?

Thanks.
