What I do - explained in the R man page - is

R < example.R > example.out

and I have found it useful (for some reason I can't recall) to
use the --vanilla option in these cases:

R --vanilla < example.R > example.out

And the last part (> example.out) is not needed if the script
itself contains commands for writing output.

I'm sure there is at least one other way to do it.
