I just installed R-2.3.1pat under Windows XP as well as the associated
RWinEdt. If I start RGui from its shortcut (but do _not_ also start
RWinEdt) and then try to execute demo() or help(), I get a RWinEdt
pop-up error window with message:
File "D:\WP\WinEdtData\WinEdt\D:/WP/WinEdtData/WinEdt/R.ini" does not
Qualifier -e/-E does not specify an existing file!
First question: what is causing RWinEdt even to get involved here?
Second: where is the garbled path to R.ini coming from.
Here's the configuration: Everything R is in D:\Stats\R. R-2.3.1pat
has the actual R release installed.
The shortcut for R-2.3.1-pat has target
D:\Stats\R\R-2.3.1pat\bin\Rgui.exe and starts in
File .Renviron is in D:\Stats\R. R-2.3.1pat; the only lines in it that
are not commented out are:
File .Rprofile is in e:/Documents/R (the reference of myR_USER); the
only lines in it not commented out are:
-E=\"D:/WP/WinEdtData/WinEdt/R.ini\" -V") [on 1 line]
-e=\"D:/WP/WinEdtData/WinEdt/R.ini\" -V") [on 1 line]
.First <- function(x) print("Profile read")
Is the root of the problem that I have a single .Rprofile set up for
RWinEdt but need to have a different one for RGui without RWinEdt?
And, if so, how do I tell R which one to use at startup?
