Hi All:
Can anyone give me a hint about how to find functions built in in R. based on the articule below it should be something called DIYhelp but I can't find it. Thanks

Part of the Kickstarting R package is a little text searching facility called DIYHelp. The program is based upon a simple, brute-force search of the directory tree from the point that you specify. The concept is that you often know approximately where the information you want to know is, but not exactly which file.

By unpacking the diyhelp.tar.gz file in a suitable place (often /usr/local) and following the instructions in the INSTALL file, you can see if the program helps you to find functions in R.
