R/ dumping code to file

OS: Linux Mandrake 9.1
release: R 1.9.0 
editor: Xemacs 21.4
frontend: ESS 5.1.23

In a previous installation of ESS under emacs (not xemacs) I had an option
that I want to replicate in my current installation. I would like to dump
the coding from my R-scripts to an ascii file when I compile the code using
^C-D. At present the code from my scripts is all in a .RData file, but this
can be inconvenient if something corrupts in that file. I think the option
was in one of the initialisation files (either a .emacs or one of the
perhaps in the ess-site.el file?).

My earlier configuration produced an /R-src directory with text files for
each script (user.filename.R) that could readily be reloaded in the event of
corruption of .R-data, and can  be searched with grep, or whatever.

Help, much appreciated,
