I think the problem the OP may be having is that the code will not  
work if you put it in a document window in R and then tell R to  
"source the document". At least not with R.app in MacOSX. This is  
what happened when I did it:

 > source("/tmp/Rtmp0TQfA6/file10d63af1")
enter the number of groups: unlink("/tmp/Rtmp0TQfA6/file10d63af1")

Then the value of ANSWER is:

[1] "unlink(\"/tmp/Rtmp0TQfA6/file10d63af1\")"

If instead you select the lines and select the "Execute" option, then  
it does the right thing. (These options appear under the Edit menu in  
R.app, don't know about other platforms).
