If a want to save a whole program (say more than 5 command lines), how can I proceed without each time using the command history (that allow me to recall previously saved command, but which is to long if you want to recall more than 5 command lines), or without saving to a text file and use copy/paste when I open a new R session (but in fact this doesn't work since when you copy your program to a text file, you copy the "<" or the "+" , and when you paste it back to a new R 
command sheet, you get syntax error since you now have double "<" (<<) and double "+" (++) at each line.
