Hi Ramon,

That's another good use for littler's r. With a package foo, I just call

   $ r --package foo --eval 'print(summary(someFunctionIamTesting()))'

or in short form

   $ r -lfoo -e'print(summary(someFunctionIamTesting()))'    

right after a rebuild of the package in question. That way you get to keep the package code in the package, and have a light-weight testing wrapper.

Rscript can do the same (with slightly different calling syntax), in case 'sudo apt-get install littler' won't work for you ;-)

Hth, Dirk
