Say I want to create and edit a new R file using emacs/ESS. I type
emacs myfile.R at my shell prompt and an empty file opens. Hurray! I start typing my code:
at which point I am interrupted and prompted with,
R starting project directory? ~/Desktop/
I think I have two options: 1)
Ctrl+g to ignore the prompt and keep on working or 2) specify a project directory. If I do the former, I will keep getting the same prompt until I specify a project directory. If I specify a project directory, an R console will automatically open. The problem is that I don't want an R console: I just want to create and edit an R file using ESS so that I have syntax highlighting.
Q: Is there a way to prevent the R console from opening?
