  PeHo> I have been trying to get Xgobi to work with the function xgobi(),

  PeHo> @echo off
  PeHo>  PATH=c:\windows\
  PeHo> set DISPLAY=
  PeHo> set XGOBIDIR=c:/Xgobi3
  PeHo> c:\Xgobi3\xgobi.exe

I've half forgotten all about *.bat programming, but shouldn't your
xgobi.bat  in the last line  __pass__ the arguments that the batch script
got, i.e.  in Unix shell (instead of bat language),
the last line would be something like
     c:\Xgobi3\xgobi.exe $*

  PeHo> In R I get:

  PeHo> C:\RW0642/library/xgobi/scripts/xgobi.bat -vtitle 'D1' -dev 2 -std mmx
  PeHo> C:/WINDOWS/TEMP/xgobi18467

  PeHo> I am running Xgobi on the MIX X server on Windows95. Do you know
  PeHo> how I can get Xgobi to accept any of my data.frames? Xgobi runs
  PeHo> well on the flea example found in the Xgobi package.  Also, if
  PeHo> the path of the data file is placed after c:\Xgobi3\xgobi.exe,
  PeHo> then Xgobi will work with this file.
