Hi the list (well, half of the list, only the one who are not on holidays...)

I am trying to make an S4 package. When I run it on a console, everything seems ok. When I run R CMD check, I got an error --- 8<

Error in setMethod("plot", "ClassX", function(x, y) { : no existing definition for function "plot"
--- 8< ----------------------

If I add setGeneric("plot",function(x,y,...){standardGeneric("plot")}) in my code, then everything is OK.

This is a surprise for me since I taught that we do not need to redefine as generic the function that are already generic, like "plot". Am I wrong ?
