To run the copy of R bundled with Sage, we can use sage -R, but this option is not documented in the help message returned by sage -advanced.

The relevant file is SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/sage-sage.

Are there any other programs we can run in this way which are not on that list? Gap, Pari, Maxima are all there...

  • Status changed from new to needs_review

Huh, this was fixed at some point in the recent past. At any rate, it is in the released 4.7.1.

  -maxima [...]       -- run Sage's Maxima with given arguments
  -mwrank [...]       -- run Sage's mwrank with given arguments
  -python [...]       -- run the Python interpreter
  -R [...]            -- run Sage's R with given arguments
  -scons [...]        -- run Sage's scons

In fact, it even shows up in ./sage -help.
