[R-SIG-Mac] R --vanilla --slave

I am trying to use the following syntax (so I can submit R scripts to  
an X-grid cluster if anyone is interested):

dyn094076:~ apb$ R --vanilla --slave <test.R> test.txt

to run the following script

write(rnorm(4)," ")

as suggested in  

The script is a BBedit file called test.R, is in my home and fails by  
producing a blank text file.
I have also tried including the file="test.txt" addition in the write()  
function, and leaving out the # line, which results with the R startup  
verbiage being printed to the file, but no data.

Is there an OS X method for this? Am I missing something (probably)?
many thanks for the help.
