Startup and Closing Behavior
Starting R: The R GUI versions, including RStudio, under Windows and Mac OS X can be opened by double-clicking their icons. Alternatively, one can start it by typing
Rin a terminal (default under Linux).
Startup/Closing Behavior: The R environment is controlled by hidden files in the startup directory:
Save workspace image? [y/n/c]:
When responding with
y, then the entire R workspace will be written to the
.RDatafile which can become very large. Often it is sufficient to just save an analysis protocol in an R source file. This way one can quickly regenerate all data sets and objects.
Create an object with the assignment operator
object <- ...
List objects in current R session
Return content of current working directory

Change current working directory
