i would like to find out more on how Rgui works. Is there any
documentation that details how RGui interfaces with the R language &
environment. So, i would like to know things such as:

- What language is RGui built in (source available?)
- What language is RTerm built in?
- how does the output of an R command get directed to the terminal
window in RGui?

It seems to me that RGui is RTerm packaged in an application with a
several convenient GUI capabilities. RGui must then be able to
somehow embed RTerm & capture the graphing window produced when plotting.
How is this implemented (especially if RTerm and RGui
are written in different languages)?

Thanks for any information.
