How to disable "Save workspace image?" prompt in R?

When I exit the interactive R shell, it displays an annoying prompt every time:

Save workspace image? [y/n/c]: n

I'm always answering "no" to it, because if I wished to save my work, I'd do that before trying to exit.

How to get rid of the prompt?

Note: see


You can pass the --no-save command line argument when you start R, or you can override the q function:

  function(save = "no", status = 0, runLast = TRUE) 
    .Internal(quit(save, status, runLast))

Put the above code in your .Rprofile so it will be run on startup for every session.
