This is covered in the Writing R Extensions manual (page 32), but if you
tried creating a .Rprofile file and it didn't work then the problem
might be that it is in the wrong place. On my Windows 7 desktop, R opens
in my "Documents" folder rather than my home directory, so my .Rprofile
folder has to go into "Documents".
