[TxMt] New Rbundle and absolute beginner questions on how it works

I  wonder if someone with a lot of patience can help me with getting the
basics of this working. I have downloaded the the three files that Hans-Jorg
uploade to this forum, as they don't appear to be in the repository yet.

Of the three files only one looked like the other bundle files and I copied
it into the same directory where the old RBundle was located. I now have a
new set of commands and updated the help index.

However, I am not at all sure what to do with the other two files (Rdaemon
and R,app) as these don't unzip to bundle files.

I am also being extremely dim in getting things to work.

If I type "test<-c(3,4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)" in TextMate and hit command R, An R
runtime opens and the command is executed and this line appears in the

I would now expect to type "test" in Textmate, hit command R again and get
something like:

> test
[1]  3  4  6  7  8  9 10

in the runtime window. However, what I get is

> test
Error: object "test" not found
Execution halted

If I open R and have the RConsole open, then "send selection to r.app" works
as expected, but as that has a rather clumsy shortcut key, I assume the
shorter command R option is the "normal"way of working

I accept my unfamiliarity with TextMate is probably the problem, but I would
appreciate someone pointing out the obvious to me.

Many thanks,
