And in this case it is perfectly correct. See "BBedit and LaTeX  
integration under Leopard" from January 13 onwards for details. My  
BBEdit-TeX integration scripts execute in a running terminal window,  
so all you need to do is make sure the PATH in the terminal is  
configured correctly.

Now, your remark for R is correct, but Dick replied to the TeX  
scenario, not R.
