Emacs and ESS is a powerful way to write and run R code. However, given the
nature of your question, you may want to use R.app for your analyses. You
started this application when you double-clicked the R icon. Choose 'New
Document' from the file menu and you have a code window with syntax
highlighting and autocomplete. Apple-return sends any highlighted code to the
R console and all plot code is sent to an aqua window in the OS X-native pdf
format. Be sure to look at the 'R for Mac OS X FAQ' under the Help menu of

Good luck, Matt
