Hi! I've been browsing through the last months' archive and I can't
find an answer to my question, so here it is (let's hope it's not too
I'm working on extensions of an R library, and I would be very
surprised if everyone developing R packages is doing the following, as I do:
1.- Write down a modification of an R file
2.- Exit the current R session
3.- Install the package as root (sudo R CMD INSTALL...)
4.- Launch a new R session
5.- Test the change, if it does not work, go back to 1 or debug.
Is this the proper (but quite awkward) way to proceed or there is an
alternative to skip steps 2 to 4? I'm using emacs with ESS under linux.
Thank you in advance for your time! Best regards,
