[R] Running R scripts from a GUI interface

Thank you very much for your response and it looks like R Commander is very capable, but I think it is heading the wrong direction from where we are looking to go, i.e. simpler interface.   

I guess (and I may be dating myself) when I was previously working with MATLAB I could use something like Real-time Workshop and EmbeddedCoder to export a C/C++ code of all our scripts that could be built into a DLL.  I would then use VisualBasic (I would like to use TCL/TK or other more current language) to create a very basic GUI that just had four radials and one text entry field and load in the DLL.  It would not have all commandline and all the other unnecessary bits, especially since the script reached maturity and would not need to be altered.  

I'm curious if R allows something like things, i.e. to further simply so that a simple GUI and DLL of the scripts could be delivered.

Thanks again for any insights and feedback you can provide.
