R Question

Clear startup screen in R / RStudio

I would to change the start up/ logon screen that I get when I first open up R or actually Rstudio. What I would like to have is just the '>' prompt and nothing else.

I know I have seen this on the web before but can't remember what the search phrase was.

I should have added that I am using Ubuntu Linux 10.04!

Any suggestions?

My console in RStudio

Answer

You can put this line to .bashrc in your home directory or .zshrc if you use zsh.

alias R='R -q'

-q means quiet.
