[R] run self written functions

I'm not sure if I'm in the right place with my question... I'm running R on Windows and wrote a function and saved it as .R file. It looks like this:

bmi <- function(weight, height) {

    bmi <- weight / height^2

If I want to use this function, I have to mark everything and then press Ctrl-R. But then everything single line is executed on the command line, which means that I will "loose" my history when the code becomes longer. Further, I wonder if there is any way to do some output for control within the function (or any other possibilities to debug in a way).

Maybe, I have chosen a completely wrong way? I only want to make it easy to create some graphical visualizations of data which will be read in by csv. files, has to be converted and then displayed depending on some "displaying parameters".
