Yes, thank you.
I've now committed code that just gives an error message in such
Why (on earth) do you have a mess (with R input and output) in a
.R buffer that you want to clean?
My .R buffers may be messy sometimes, but
*not* because they'd contain things like
"> A <- matrix(...)" instead of
"A <- matrix(...)"
(note the extra R prompt!)
If it's from cut&paste of e-mails or similar things, you really
need to change your work flow:
Put such things into an *.Rout buffer (open a new *.Rout file, make that writable
via C-x C-q, and then paste "the mess" in there),
and then maybe clean it.
The following issue, I have to leave to someone else,
possibly should go to a different mailing list / forum:
