assuming R was launched successfully, you will notice that two commands have
been executed automatically:
> gretldata <- read.table("/home/username/.gretl/Rdata.tmp",
For Mac OS X that would be /Users/<username>/.gretl/Rdata.tmp
The commands are in the file/Users/<username>/.gretl/Rsrc
When I open Rsrc file (inside/Users/<username>/.gretl/) I found these
# load data from gretl
gretldata <- read.table("/Users/henrique/.gretl/Rdata.tmp", header=TRUE)
gretldata <- ts(gretldata, start=c(1950, 1), frequency = 4)
I think the command is incomplete. The command "attach(gretldata)" is
missing. Am I right?
In fact, this doesn't occur.

How have you installed R?
AFAIK /usr/bin/R should be there. It is a link to
I use it to build/test R packages; I have never known it to not work.
I'd installed through CRAN binaries (R-2.10.0.pkg).
