Some comments:
1. sink() does not return a value. There is on point to set attr <-
sink(...). Just give the command sink("C://....etc")
2. to complete the saving to the file you must give a second sink command
with no argument:  sink()
So your code would be (pseudo-code, not actual code)

sink( "filename" )
do something that prints output which will be captured by sink
