Are you doing this from a package in R, or from another application?
Both are covered in 'Writing R Extensions': the first uses eval in C, and 
the second needs embedded R or an R server.

Depending on your OS, there are other possibilities like (D)COM (also in 
that manual) and Rserve (www.rosuda.org/Rserve).

(The details are more appropriate for the R-devel list, according to the 
posting guide.)
