Why not just run:
unix> R --vanilla --slave < test.R > test.out

Then the "options(echo=FALSE)" line is unnecessary.  Note an explicit q()
at the end of the script eliminates a single blank line that occurs otherwise.
So the test.R script is just:


                              -- David Brahm (brahm at alum.mit.edu)
