Re: [Rd] Side-effects of require() vs library() on x86_64 aka amd64

The R-intro manual has a brief description:


    Make R run as quietly as possible. This option is intended to     support programs which use R to compute results for them. It     implies --quiet and --no-save.

I suspect that for more detail than that, one would have to look at the sources. But the above helps explain the behavior you saw; a "--quite" R will suppress some output and that will make a difference in terms of memory allocation.
