When you are in a myfile.r buffer, click on the emacs menu item
 ESS/Start Process/Other/
This will give you a list of all versions of R on your computer.
Click one of them and it will execute inside an *R* buffer.

Subject: [ESS] toggle between R versions

I have both R-2.6.1 and R-devel installed on Ubuntu Gutsy, each with 
their own site-library, although currently I go into .Rprofile to 
manually change with site-library will be loaded. When starting R from 
within ESS-Emacs, I would like to be able to instruct which version I 
want to use. Is this possible? For this to work, I would also need 
.Rprofile to detect the version of R and use the appropriate site-library.

Can all or any of this be done?
