Yihui got me psyched a little about GitHub

After my last post about running your R infrastructure from an USB drive, he commented on my function that would update the Windows PATH (which is at least important for R and Rtools).

Now I found some time to polish it a little. Feel free to test (there’s a little example script) and comment on it on GitHub!

**UPDATE 2012-03-07**

Some further tweaking:

- Generic function: pathWindowsUpdate.R
- Method for class “list”: pathWindowsUpdate.R
- Example: pathWindowsUpdate.R

Note: you do need to other functions/methods in R
