[R] force interactive

I'd like to invoke R using a fifo for input.  The
following unix commands gets me almost completely

mkfifo R.fifo
R --no-save <R.fifo >R.out

in a separate window, I would enter the command eg
printf "capabilities()" >R.fifo

the expected output goes into R.out; but the process
stops. How to I make R persist so I can send
multiple commands to the fifo?

Also, would this be possible in windows?
