Hello ess esses,

In SuSE 8.1, R 1.62 and Xemacs 21.4 and Ess 5.1.24

I use
system(acroread afile.pdf, intern = FALSE)

the file opens up OK but further activity in R is locked.

I would like to have the file on the desktop and change between
the pdf document and Xemacs   

what to do?

Fredrik Lundgren
