I am using -rsource- from SSC by Roger Newsom, but it fails after the
first line of actual R code (i.e., the comments source, but it returns
to Stata after the first R command).

Here is the relevant code:

global working_dir C:\users\richard\documents\research\term_paper_econ824
global Rterm_path `"C:\Program Files\R\R-2.13.1\bin\x64\Rterm.exe"'
rsource using `"$working_dir\get_data.R"'

And the output, which doesn't provide an error, just returns to Stata:

. rsource using `"$working_dir\get_data.R"'
Assumed R program path: "C:\Program Files\R\R-2.13.1\bin\x64\Rterm.exe"

I am using Stata 11.2 and R 2.13-1 on a Windows 7 laptop. Any ideas? Thanks!
