 there are some nice simple windows-bat files [1] [2] to start R
 (www.r-project.org) from everywhere if these bat-files are in %PATH%

 tested here locally with following example


 batch files are in e.g.



 added a bat-file in


 with a onliner to add (A) to the path

 PATH %PATH%;%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\r-batchfiles

 then R is availabe in the OSGeo4W-shell/OSGeo4W-windows command shell and
 can be started e.g. within a winGRASS-session.

 as these R-batch-files recognizes R 32bit/R 64bit, it may be included in
 OSGeo4W 32bit and 64bit.

 the license is GNU GPL v2.

 it would be a really added value for OSGeo4W, as R is often used in GIS
 workflows/analyses and the OSGeo4W-R-integration would be enabled in an
 easy way.

 would it be possible these files into OSGeo4W?
