You can set this in script as:

library("unixtools ")

Subject: [R] change location of temporary files

I would like to change where R stores the temporary files to my external hard drive in my iMac. This is important because the temporary files R creates are huge and I do not have enough available space in my internal HD. Again, this is for macOS.

This change has to be temporary. Later I need to use the usual location for temp files in the internal HD.

Thanks in advance,
Kumar Mainali
