Under a Unix system you could try to pipe the command into tail -f

i.e.,

$ R CMD BATCH mycode.R | tail -f

That should display the file as it gets written.

I don't have access to a Unix system right now to give this a try but it should be a work around until someone who knows more about R can come up with an answer.
