Subject: [R] cat function within a loop

>I have a 'cat' function within a for loop.
> I would like it to print out the result everytime it goes through 
> the
> for loop so that I can monitor the progress, but it only prints out
> (execute the cat function) once at the very end of the for loop.
> A simple example:
> for(i in 1:100000){
> cat(i, '\n')
> }
> What should I do in order for the cat function to be executed
> everytime it goes thorough the for loop?
> Thanks!
