[R] Command line arguments with source() - Windows OS

Hi Everyone,

I am pretty new to R and so far have mostly been using R interactively through the Windows console.

I'm starting to write some scripts, and have been executing them using the source() command, i.e. source(myRfile.R).

My questions is how can I pass command line arguments to R. My file "myRfile.R" has some global variables which I would like to be able to set at run-time, without having to go in and edit the text of the file each time I want to run it.

I can't seem to find much information on this topic for Windows and using it with the console - so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!
