Beyond sink() - capturing messages to file and stdout [R for BE/BA]

Hi all,

I would like to capture all messages from R (optionally all R input and output) to a file while at the same time having them on stdout as usual.
The sink() function can do either, but apparently (??) not both simultaneously which is what I'd like to use. I have no idea where to start, actually. Note: This involves shelling R under windows so stdout is stdout whether or not it is captured via a pipe into a GUI.
Alternatively, if there were a method assiciated with q() or quit() which would upon termination save all stdout info (messages+input+output; what you see on a console when you interact in e.g. R GUI or R Studio) to a txt-file post hoc then that would be equally good.

Tried google and TFM :PCchaos: Any idea how to do this?

Many thanks and a good weekend to all.
