I have recently began using R as a replacement package for S-plus. My
first impressions are that it a very powerful statistical tool.

I have a quick question on using batch jobs in R:

In S-plus, a batch job can be run externally using:

splus /batch inputfile outputfile

In the UNIX version of R a batch job can be run as:

R <inputfile> outputfile --save &

I have been investigating using batch jobs with R in a Windows
It seems the R requires an argument to run a batch job here such as:

R BATCH inputfile outputfile

However, the versionof R(1.1.0) which we are running does not recognise
this BATCH argument. Do you have any information on this?

Best Regards,
