I have now tried reversing the single quotes and double quotes as here:

cabbages$Year<-recode(cabbages$Year,"'X2001'='2001';'X2002'='2002';'X2003'='2003'; etc

This is now compiling verbatim (so no spurious slashes) when it appears in the PDF , but it is running off the edge of the page and not actually running in R.

My next command

head(cabbages, n=10)

is showing no recoding has taken place.
