Check help for tempfile() and tempdir()
You can set an environment variable
as discussed in the help
to point to D:\temp
By default, the filenames will be
in the directory given by tempdir().
This will be a subdirectory of the
temporary directory found by the
following rule. The environment variables
TMPDIR, TMP and TEMP are checked in turn
and the first found which points to a
writable directory is used: if none
succeeds /tmp is used.

I'm trying to redirect where temporary files go under R to
D:\temp\somerandomname from its default (C:\Documents and
Settings\username\Temp\somerandomname) -- how do I go about doing this?
