Dear John,

Perhaps start Notepad in the background is 
what you mean?  Something like 

	system2("START /B Notepad", invisible=FALSE)

Found it at [1].  I'm not on Windows ever, so 
I can not test it.

What are you trying to achieve here?

Where would the things you type into Notepad 
end up?  Will R read it.  It might be more 
useful to take user input by calling 

	readline(prompt="Enter something here at least: ")
