This is the #1 FAQ. Say. in the terminal,

cd /usr/local/bin; ./R

or say


In order to just say R, /usr/local/bin must be in your PATH. To
make sure that it is, put

setenv PATH /usr/local/bin:{$PATH}

in your ~/.tcshrc.

If any of the above is not clear, I strongly suggest

Taylor and Peek: Unix for Mac OS X, O'Reilly, 2002.

Every piece of Unix you learn will make your OS X experience better.
