Re: [R] Running LaTeX dvi previewer on MacOS X

The generic way to open an arbitrary file with an arbitrary application in OS X at the command line in a shell window is

    open -a application_name file_name

quoted if there are embedded spaces. One doesn't generally have to give the full path to the application.

Digging into help.start() might give you some pointers.
