Re: [R] R command history -- can it be like Matlab's?

      Regarding dubuggers, RSiteSearch("debug", "fun") produced 183 hits for me just now. The first two reference a "debug" package, while the third describes the "debug" function in the "base" package.

      The "debug{base}" function is great, but not as good as the Matlab debugger. The "debug" package provides other useful functionality but is harder to use. I use the "debug{base}" function routinely and the "debug" package only very rarely.

      Hope this helps.
