I am looking for a good way to specify something in .emacs for Emacs
such that when I have a .r source file opened, hitting Esc R will split
the window into two buffers and start the R process in the lower buffer.
I find myself always doing Cntl-X-2 and then having to put foo.r back
into the upper buffer.
Tony Rossini outlined the following:
(defun myR ()
(if (= (major-mode 'current-buffer) 'R-mode)
which would be invoked with M-x myR. If anyone knows how to complete
that code including the spellings of the correct function calls, or has
another idea I'd appreciate hearing about it. I have already put (setq
ess-ask-for-ess-directory nil) in my .emacs to bypass the selection of
the working directory.
