Works for me. Thanks Kit and Mike. -Dave On Dec 1, 2008, at 6:45 PM, Michael Hanson wrote:

While I'm on the topic of platform independence....I noticed from -help rsource- that the "Rterm_path" global macro ofRoger Newson's -rsource- procedure defaults to a value of"Rterm.exe". In light of Kit Baum's response to David Airey (quotedbelow), it seems that a more robust solution would be to replacelines 30-32 of rsource.ado:if `"`rpath'"'=="" {; local rpath "Rterm.exe"; }; with the following: if `"`rpath'"'=="" {; if c(os) == "Windows" {; local rpath "Rterm.exe"; }; else {; local rpath "/usr/bin/r"; }; };If I understand Kit's message correctly, the latter executable pathis valid for any Unix-based installation of R (including R.app onMac OS X).Hope this helps, MikeOn Dec 1, 2008, at 6:08 PM, Kit Baum wrote:He is referring to Roger Newson's -rsource- package on SSC.
