Re: [R] scripts with littler

Guys, thanks very much for your help. Rscript looks great and I'll look forward to it.

The /usr/bin/env thing seems to be a general difficulty with the mechanism. One's first thought has to be to modify env to parse and then pass the arguments in the expected way (maybe #!/usr/bin/env2?), and of course one's second is that this must already have been done...

An S of TFW produces 'Citizens for a better env', but this isn't as hopeful as it sounds.

I'm actually tempted to use

#!/usr/bin/env r

as the first two lines of every script, rather than messing about trying to pass options.

Cheers, John.
