Re: [R] Textpad help

I looked at the link and it would never work for me since with TextPad it starts a new session with each submission. With tinn-R it just sends it to the current GUI session which makes debugging much easier since if an error occurs you have the GUI to see exactly what was sent. I would strongly suggest that you use tinn-r since the TextPad way does not allow incremental development. Many of my scripts run for minutes to get to the point where I want to test out some new code. So I am not even going to try it since if something does error out, you have no way of seeing what else in the environment might be causing the problem.
