Interesting. Do you mean the fifo example, or just a file? Or both?
I wonder what this depends on then....
Particularly interesting that this does echo on macOS:
echo '1+1' | R --slave --interactive
But the FIFO example does not.
Anyway, it seems that if I remove --interactive then I get no echo.

This seems good enough for my use case, thanks much!
Luckily, this also solves the "disabling the crash dialog" problem, which I
have if I specify --interactive.
