I would add that (under Windows, and I would assume under other OS) you can 
use any programming editor to develop the R commands, and then copy and 
paste them into the R session.  Under Windows, the "Tinn-R" editor is much 
simpler than Emacs, and has some useful features for R users: line 
numbering, syntax coloring, and the ability to submit all or part of the 
edited text to R easily. http://tinn.solarvoid.com/
