Passing of R cmd line parameters

    in version 2.6.1 (with R 2.15.1), passing of R cmd line parameters does not appear to work. I tried this on two different machines without success. When I pass the cmd line parameters myself (via the command prompt), it does work. Would be great to get this feature back! Thanks in advance for looking into this.

    Which command line parameters?  Can you give a reproducible example and explain what you are passing and what you expect to see and what is being seen.  Thanks.

    Thank you for your response.

    I am using -no-save as the command line parameter, so that R should not ask to save the workspace when quitting. However, it still does. On the other hand, starting Rgui.exe from the command line with -no-save works as intended.

    I appear to be having a similar problem. I am running NppToR version 2.6.1 and R 2.15.0 on Windows 7. In my case, I need to be able to set TMPDIR when starting R. 

    From the command line, if I use the command

    > Rgui.exe TMPDIR=P://Temp

    R will reports that tempdir() is "P://Temp\\Rtmpyef7xU".  However, while I have entered TMPDIR=P://Temp in the box for Rcmd line parameters within NppToRs settings,  if NppToR spawns the R session tempdir() reports: C:\\Users\\martinsa\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\Rtmp2hpcBo" rather than the expected "P://Temp\\Rtmpyef7xU"

    So either the command is not being passed , or I am misunderstanding what I need to do.

    Just wanted to bring this issue up again. If passing of command line parameters generally works in version 2.6.1, then this would be good to know, so I can continue to troubleshoot the problem and see if I can get it to work eventually.

    I am in the middle of some rewrites to fix several problems.  I have not forgotten and you should see something soon.

    Just uploaded new version 2.6.2 that should fix this problem.  Please report back any new issues that you find.
