   Beats me.

   Yes, the error seems that R cannot find the file, but it's in the same
directory and the file does exist:

> getwd()
[1] "/home/rshepard/documents/white-papers/geochemistry/willamette-river-mercury/scripts"

~/documents/white-papers/geochemistry/willamette-river-mercury/scripts]$ ls input-summerize.R

   So, R is running in the scripts/ directory and the script is there, too.

   This is why I asked for help as the error makes no sense to me.
