I use Subversion. It works best with text, but can handle binary files too.
So the idea would be to write scripts that either generate or load the
data I want to work on, and source those at the beginning of a session.
I always try to start with a clean workspace.
Separate the code that does complex calculations into functions (and
consider organizing it into a package, if it's big enough); put those
functions in separate files from the scripts that run them on particular
examples. This way you can run source("fns.R") to update the function
definitions without re-doing all the simulations in your project.
