If you are spending any significant time working in R I would highly
recommend emacs with ESS. Both are apt-gettable for stable, testing and
unstable. It does require a bit of time on your part, to run through the
emacs tutorial and then the basics of ESS. However, once you do that you
can do just about anything with it.
I started out with the very basic commands - moving around, cutting and
pasting from a script into R. Whenever I found I was doing the same
thing over and over I poked around until I found the emacs way to make
it easier - Ctrl-a to jump to the beginning of a line, Ctrl-c Ctrl-f to
send a function from a script into R, Ctrl-c Ctrl-v to open a help
If you already know how to use emacs then you should run, not walk, over
to the repositories to install ESS. If you don't know emacs, it might be
worth learning just for ESS.
