The Rsubmit plugin executes selected R source code from within an editor 
window. The code is passed to a (local or remote) Rserve session and the 
output is streamed back to eclipse.


    * Submit of selected code segments in opened files or whole text (if 
nothing is selected) from an editor
    * Connects to local Rserve sessions or Rserve on a remote host.
    * Supports different configurations for code submit
    * Keeps workspace elements, supports incremental code submit
    * Is able to displays output from a local Rserve session in console window
    * Is (partially) able to display output from a remote Rserve session in 
console window
    * Output of remote sessions is (or should be) displayed incremental and in 
(near) real-time. Well, at least it worked in the runtime workbench. The 
writing to the eclipse console window (in "normal" eclipse mode) seems to be 
buffered, so there is not always a immediate reacton to new R output.


    * eclipse 3.1 (3.0 does / should not work)
    * An R installation. Get it from: R Project for Statistical Computing 
    * Installed Rserve (http://stats.math.uni-augsburg.de/Rserve/)
    * Please start the Rserve session before connection from the plugin! 
(Currently the connection will not restart after an error).
    * There seems to be an issue with JDK 1.5. It works with 1.4.2. Please try 
and report errors to me.
