[R] How to programmatically save a web-page using R (mimicking Command+S)

I would appreciate if someone can give me a pointer on how to save a
webpage programmatically using R.

For example, let say I have this webpage open in my browser:


When manually I save this page, I just press Command+S (using Mac) and
then this page get saved in hard-disk

Now I want R to mimic this same job that I do using Command-S

So far I have tried with readLines() however the output content is
different than what I could achieve using Command+S

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
