No that does not work, but you can consider working in the other way: starting Tinn-R while you start R. Then you have all the flexibility to define whatever command line argument you want for R.

There are many ways to do so, but I personally use the following one:

  1. I define:

 > options(IDE = "c:/program files/tinn-R/bin/tinn-R.exe")

(of course, the path should reflect the place you actually installed Tinn-R!)

and then, I start the svGUI package (from the SciViews bundle available on CRAN).

 > library(svGUI)

Tinn-R is started (if not already running), and also, the R call-tip server (live calculation of call-tips for the syntax of R functions) is activated behind the scene.

If you are happy with this, and would like to start Tinn-R and activate the R call-tip server automatically everytime you start R, just add those two lines of code in your 'Rprofile' file (the general 'Rprofile' is in /etc subdirectory of the R directory).

Once it is done, do not worry about starting Tinn-R, or R from within Tinn-R, just start R with all the command line options you like, and you get Tinn-R started automatically (if it is not running yet)!

Note that this tip is in FAQ 3.8, in the new version of Tinn-R FAQ to be   released soon, together with the latest stable Tinn-R 1.15.1.7 next week or so ;-)

Best,

Philippe
