If you have installed GRASS in another directory, you should specify
the "grass5" startup script directly during installation (example):
- /usr/bin/R CMD INSTALL --configure-args=--grass5=/opt/ssi/bin/grass5 GRASS_0.1-9.tar.gz
+ /usr/bin/R CMD INSTALL --configure-args=--grass5=/usr/local/bin/grass5 GRASS_0.1-9.tar.gz

In general winGRASS under Cygwin is able to talk to R/MS-Windows (<a href=http://cran.at.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/rw-FAQ.html>R/Windows FAQ</a>)
+Currently ActivePerl seems to be the better choice for the installation.

-You have to add also c:\Perl\bin in the PATH variable of Windows. And also, to
-bypass Cygwin's path and make sure that MinGW and Perl are the first directories
-in the Cygwin path. So, one needs to modify the /etc/profile file AND any user
-defined resource file in their home directory (i.e. a ~/.bash_profile that needed
-updating too - don't know why but it does).
-rw1060\bin - that can be put in the path too.
-When you installed R from rw1060.exe, you should have accepted the default
-install of source package installation files too.

-Then, installation of the GRASS/R interface:
- - Instead of '/usr/bin/R' use 'Rcmd'
- - See further command above (UN*X part).
+Then, installation of the GRASS/R interface (note, no 'CMD'!):
+ - Rcmd.exe INSTALL -c GRASS_version.tar.gz
+Or, for the compiled version:
+ - Rcmd.exe INSTALL --configure-args=--grass5=/usr/local/bin/grass5 GRASS_0.1-9.tar.gz
NOTE 1: When using the GRASS/R interface, ignore (if appearing) strange error messages
which are generated by the GRASS/R interface.
-NOTE 2: We also succeeded to run R in GRASS on Cygwin in batch mode.
+NOTE 2: If the temp directory contains spaces, R has a problem (see
+ tempfile() help page). You have to change the R temp dir (ADD how to
