[R] scripts with littler / subroutines

Hi (again),

Another difficulty I'm having is creating a common function (foo, say) to share between two scripts.

I've tried making a third file containing the function and then sourcing it with source ("foo.R"), but that only works if you run the script in the directory where "foo.R" is. (or if the scripts know where they're installed)

The other solutions that occur are copy-and-paste, a preprocessor, or some sort of special-purpose library. I think I like the preprocessor best, but it's still kind of nasty.

I have the feeling that I'm probably missing something obvious here! Can anyone help?

Cheers, John.
