CarbonEL package hooks a Carbon event loop into a running R and marks R as a front application. This allows R to process Apple UI events and to respond to user events. In particular this makes the integrated, old, Carbon Quartz device work in console-version of R such as R run in Terminal or ESS.

Note: This package is for Mac OS X console version of R only! It doesn't work in the GUI (because it's not needed there) and it doesn't work on any other platform than Mac OS X (because Carbon is not cross-platform). Also note that this package doesn't fix the old Quartz device - there are still problems with that ancient device, it merely allows R to interact with the UI.
