A msg. to R-help prompted me to read the help page for split.screen/screen, etc.
I understand what the function is for, but could not find information that described how the argument 'n' in screen/erase.screen/close.screen is mapped to the regions on the device. All we are told is e.g. screen(1) prepares the first region for plotting - but which region is region 1?? Obviously this can be figured out by playing around with the function, but a description of how the regions are numbered would make a nice addition.
