stop a script and resume it

I assume you are running S-Plus in iESS mode and that when you say
you are "running a script" you mean executing the S statement

I don't believe you can interrupt the source() command and then restart it.
This is an S-Plus limitation, not an ESS limitation.

The way to accomplish the task is to edit the file myfile.s and add
a browser() command at critical points, possibly conditionally on the
value of some variable, possibly at the beginning or end of each iteration
of a loop.  See the S-Plus documentation on the browser().
