I'm new to the list. I've used R and S-PLUS a bit for about 15 years but am now working to make R my main program for all numerical and statistical computing. I also use Octave for this kind of work and I recommend it (it is also under the GPL). Here's my question: In Octave I can write shell scripts in the Linux/UNIX environment that begin with a line like this...

#!/usr/local/bin/octave -q

...and the remaining lines are octave commands. Is it possible to do this sort of thing in R using something like this?:


Well, that isn't quite it because I tried it and it didn't work!

Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
