Re: [Rd] Front ends handling help.search() results?

The R.rsp package has a proof of concept page:

  1. library("R.rsp")
  2. browseRsp(path="/R/help/")
  3. At the bottom, there is a "help.search" form. Type in search term, e.g. "svd".

This is all web browser based, so it should be able to handle compiled vignettes (as long as there are valid paths/URL paths).
