Thanks for pointing me in right direction, both solutions are wonderful. Yes I made a mistake for 100k.

I have one doubt though, how does one locate packages that's available for specific task (like this one). Does one look at package index (http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/web/packages/index.html). or is there any other trick?

I tried "help.search("string")" and also looked at help.start() but I think it just displays whats available on my machine.

Regards and Thanks
Krishna
