;;;-- Implement "R core indentation style"--------------------------------
(setq ess-mode-hook
	 (ess-set-style 'C++ 'quiet)

	 (add-hook 'local-write-file-hooks

(add-hook 'perl-mode-hook
	  '(lambda() (setq perl-indent-level 4)))

works for me, *provided* I have set (via customization)

  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom -- don't edit or cut/paste it!
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
 '(c-basic-offset 4)
 '(c-default-style "bsd"))
