Hi

Step 1) Make an R package using the package.skeleton() command with only these two functions:

cmd <- paste(" -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " –a ",1,sep="")

cat(cmd,"\n")

}

noerror <- function(){

cmd <- paste(" -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1, " -a ",1," -a ",1," -a ",1,sep="")cat(cmd,"\n")

}

Step 2) Start R again. Load the package with library() and run the commands:
error()

noerror()

I get the following output:

*> > library(errors)
**> error()
*

-a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 <e2><80><93>a 1

*> noerror()
*

-a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1 -a 1

*>
*

Now why does that "<e2><80><93>" replace one of the "-" in the first command?
