Hello Vitalie,

none of the approaches work???  Setting "inferior-S+6-program-name" to
"Splus" doesn't seem to have any effect, if no process is running and I
submit a command from a "*.q" buffer, R is started anyway???  And I can't
set "S+6-dialect-name", if Icheck its value I get:

S+6-dialect-name is a variable defined in `ess-sp6-d.el'.
Its value is "S+6"

Name of 'dialect' for S-PLUS 6.

but doing M-x set-variable and starting to type S+6-, then «space bar» to
complete I get à "no match" in the minibuffer???

Anything I can do to help solve this???
