Hi all,

Could you point me to a script editor in Linux that will allow me to a 
somewhat easy pasting of section(s) of an R script or function into 
R for execution? Something like WinEdt+RWinEdt macro in R for 
(My time is a bit pressed. I haven't succeeded in my attempts to 
install ESS for XEmacs. No doubt due to my confusion and lack of 
competence. I am abandoning it for the moment.)

I can't see a somewhat easy way of running sections of my scripts 
and functions, written in WinEdt+RWinEdt, with the default vi. Or is 

Those who do not use vi or ESS, what do you use? Would you 
mind giving me some pointers?

Just in case:
A fresh installation of Linux Mandrake 8.0 on i586, running R 1.3

Thanks a lot,
