# load packages require(fgui) # add two number together and return the value add <- function(x1, x2) { return(x1 + x2) } # execute function through GUI y <- guiv(add) # [1] 5

The GUI produced from the code above looks like this:

I love how easy that was to do, very cool, and useful too! The package is a wrapper to the base R package tcltk.
