Show a message

Description

alert (and its alias info) shows a message to the user as a simple popup.

logjs writes a message to the JavaScript console. logjs is mainly used for debugging purposes as a way to non-intrusively print messages, but it is also visible to the user if they choose to inspect the console. You can also use the showLog function to print the JavaScript message directly to the R console.
