I am a long-time Mac user.  R is way behind on that platform, which is one
reason why I decided to try out Linux on intel.  I have the system set up
and have installed R (using Slackware, which is only distribution my tech
services wants me to use). It went very smoothly, thanks everyone behind

I installed R in the directory
Not sure if this is a sensible set-up.

Then I copied the shell script R (shows up in directory of
not as R)
as suggested to

Typing R works if I cd to /usr/local/bin/R.  But if I am elsewhere it
doesn't work.  Is there a way (like MSDOS path) to set it up so that I can
be anywhere and type R to invoke it?

Thanks very much for any help.
