Dear Jeremy,

As it says in ?Commander, the script window in the R Commander doesn't
provide a true console to R. One of the things it doesn't do is handle lines
with multiple commands separated by semicolons. In fact, I wonder what
version of the Rcmdr package you're using, since (for me) in the latest
version on CRAN (1.3-10), lines with semi-colons produce an error.

I'll take a look at this problem when I have a chance, and accommodate
semi-colons if I can do so reasonably. I don't think that it should be too
