Please tell us on which OS you are working and which version of R you
are using (assuming R-1.1.1).
As I can see from the mail header, you are running WinNT, so you should
read the "R for Windows FAQ".

Here the relevant part to answer your question:
2.6 Can I use R BATCH?
No, but you can set up a batch file using Rterm.exe. A sample batch file
might contain (as one line) 
path_to_R\bin\Rterm.exe --vsize=10M --nsize=500k --no-restore --no-save
< %1 > %1.out
