options(warn=-1)

However, warnings and errors are sent to stderr not stdout except on obselete versions (95/98/ME) of Windows, and so not redirected by that sink() call. For me (Windows XP)

> sink("foo.out")

Warning message:
test

as expected. So is this an obsolete version of Windows or a very old version of R?
