[R] errors terminating script

When running R in batch mode, I would like to detect certain
errors and prevent them from terminating the script.

Specifically, when I read in a file with read.table() and the
file is empty, the script terminates.  There are occasions
when an empty file is OK, so I'd like to continue running.

How can I catch such errors?
