Not directly within R, but you can set up an editor to allow this kind 
of features.
The recommended one is Emacs with ESS, but there are others as well 
(with different amounts of support).
See http://cran.r-project.org/other-software.html and 

Uwe Ligges

In case you should decide using Emacs with ESS you can include the following
lines in your ".emacs" startup-file:

(global-set-key [f1] 'ess-eval-line)
(global-set-key [f2] 'ess-eval-region)

with this, you can execute your code line- or region-wise by hitting the f1
or f2 key, respectively; making things even more convenient, rather than
remembering and executing: C-c C-j or C-c M-r or mouse-clicking.
