Hi All,

Another newbie question. I want to write an R script that takes argument from command line and runs and produces output to stdin.

For example if there is file foo.R with following in it.

args = commandArgs()

then, when I run it like
 $ R foo.R hello
it should print 'hello' on the terminal.

I searched the mainling list and found a very old post that said said that this feature will be implemented soon. I am expecting this has already been implemented by now.
