  1. Please upgrade R. R-2.10.0 was the first version with a new help system, hence there are some corrections made in the meantime.
  2. Please read the manual Writing R Extensions.
  3. R is case sensitive which is important for the name of the script, hence please use "R CMD Rdconv". I do not have 2.10.0 installed anywhere, but at least since R-2.10.1, Rdconv.sh is a shell script rather than a perl script.

Best,
Uwe Ligges
