I would like to redefine some R print functions  (Rprintf for example) so
that they don't print to stdout, but save the output in a global string
array. I can compile and link my definition of Rprintf into a library and
load it with dyn.load. I don't get an error message, but afterwards the
original function is still valid, my new version isn't executed.

Is there a way to change R internal functions with dyn.load?

thanks in advance for any hints
