Re: [R] Not loading libraries

Dear list,

I'm sorry about not providing all the necessary details. The R call is:

"library(tools); Sweave(\"$*.Rnw\")" | R --no-save -q

Using the --vanilla switch, I am able to keep the libraries from loading, but since I need some of the datasets in the .RData file, my call to Sweave fails.
I have not been able to find loading of libraries in an ,Rprofile, and my options contains this:

> options("defaultPackages")

$defaultPackages
[1] "datasets" "utils" "grDevices" "graphics" "stats" "methods"

Prof. Ripley is right when assuming that the libraries are loaded because of me trying out the Rcmdr GUI and then doing a save.image(). What I did not know was that I managed to save the loading of libraries at the same time. This is what I would like to undo.
