IDE/Script Editors

Except for the MacOS and Windows versions of R frontends, no internal script editor is provided. The command 'options(editor = ...)' allows defining its own preferred external one. Several editors have been customized to enhance their functions regarding the edition of R scripts: S language syntax highlighting, execution of code directly from the editor, macro and templates,... Here are some external editors with nice features for editing R scripts besides Emacs/ESS.
