Roger,

The history features on Mac OS's R.app are handled by R.app and is a (small) superset of R's facilties, e.g. it supports multi-line history recalls.

A disadvantage of this approach is that it's not possible to use R's history() and savehistory() nor make usage completely identical. The actual history files do 'interoperate', although you will loose the multiline feature.

A good list for Mac OS specific discussions is r-sig-mac_at_r-project.org.

Hope this helps,
Rob
