Rodney answered the xemacs question.
On NTemacs, you didn't give enough information to answer. When I do
M-x R TAB then I get a completion response. Normally I don't use the TAB
key, I just do M-x R RET and R starts. So the additional information I
need is for you to hit TAB a second time and see what is in the completion
buffer. If that doesn't give you the information to proceed then send the
completion buffer to ess-help.
A stylistic comment. Don't do your own work in the ess-5.1.18/lisp/
directory. That's where ESS lives. Your work should live in your directory.
For example, I use C:/rmh/ on my standalone machine and I use d:/HOME/rmh/
on my office network. Further, when I have multiple projects I keep them
in separate directories. For example for one course I use c:/rmh/503 and
for another course I use c:/rmh/93/
Please verify that the path is correctly set. In the *scratch* buffer, enter
(getenv "PATH") C-j
I find that it is sometimes easier to set the specific variable pointing to
R rather than use the PATH. In that case, I have on my machine
e a line in .emacs
(setq-default inferior-R-program-name "d:/Apps/R/rw1021/bin/Rterm.exe")
Use the correct path for your machine.
This will work on both xemacs and ntemacs.
If none of this works, then use the M-x ess-submit-bug-report command
and send that to ess-bugs at stat.math.ethz.ch
