[R] help with "attach"

I've been migrating my computing to R and have not had any major
problems running old Splus programs in R.  However, the one thing
I am missing is the ability to attach directories full of general
utility functions from whereever I happen to fire up an R session.
As a consequence, I find myself making many duplicate copies of
these little general purpose functions by cutting and pasting 
Splus function code.  In any case, this capability would seem to be 
of fundamental importance and so I would guess that it can be done.
I figured I could do something like attach("/home/royle/.RData"),
but apparently not. Can someone help me with this?

Thanks and regards,
