Hi everybody,  

I am interested in seeing how the p value is calculated for a t test for a correlation coefficient. I know that cor.test delivers the correlation coefficient and the t-test, p-value and the 95 confidence interval. I am interested in how the p-value is calculated.  

Usually if i type the name of the function i get explicitly the coding of that function, but if i type  

> cor.testfunction (x, ...) UseMethod("cor.test")<environment: namespace:stats>

So .... How can i get the coding to find out how the p-value is calculated for this function?
