Is there any way to abort the execution when the first error occurs? This happens with R CMD BATCH. If there is an error midway, an error message is printed in the output file and the execution aborts. Is there a way to mimic this with source()?

I don't see this behaviour.  If I put this in a script:


then execution stops at the "stop" line if I use source(), or R CMD 
BATCH <file>, or in RStudio, Run or Source gives the same behaviour.  I 
think older versions of RStudio would have run all three lines using 
Run, but all the other methods have stopped at the stop() line.
