I have a question on the use of system(command) from R.app:
if I try, for instance, to do:
I get the following output in the console:
/bin/sh: line 1: latex: command not found
While if I do the same thing running R from the terminal (or xterm
under X11) it works just fine.
I guess the reason is that, when in the terminal, the path is set by
my shell init file (which, incidentally, is bash) while this doesn't
happen when in R.app.
By the way, running latex is not a big issue: I can get the right
path from options(), but for other commands the problem will still be
Is there a workaround for this?
Thanks in advance for any help.
