hi all,

I'm completely new in R, and here are my questions (under windows):

1.  i want to run my four R files (pl1.r -- pl4.r) in batch mode.  i'd like
to write a batch file using Rterm.exe, since i dont get perl installed on my
computer.  My experimental batch file (*.bat) didnt work, which contains the
following lines.  however it works well when i pasted each single line to
run in the command prompt (eg. cmd).  i wonder what's wrong with my batch

D:\R\bin\Rterm.exe --vanilla <d:\work\pl1.r> pl1.out
D:\R\bin\Rterm.exe --vanilla <d:\work\pl2.r> pl2.out
D:\R\bin\Rterm.exe --vanilla <d:\work\pl3.r> pl3.out
D:\R\bin\Rterm.exe --vanilla <d:\work\pl4.r> pl4.out

2. If one of my above R files contains a function from a outside package
(eg. quantreg),  how to load it in command prompt, or how to get the package
loading process involved in my batch file?

Can anyone give me some guide?

thanks a million.
