While I think Sweave is great it might be overkill for the specific
problem mentioned.

The point is that you can script R similarly to S-PLUS. Not quite as
easily as the newer versions of S-PLUS, perhaps. However, some of us
still use R, S-PLUS, Stata, and SAS using the same approach (via
unifying interfaces such as ESS/Emacs, or text editors and loading the
resulting files). Is this what you are asking?

best,
