Re: [R] HOW to provide a CITATION file?

      "Writing R Extensions" is no longer available via "help.start()", at least not in the standard Windows install since R 2.7.2. If there is a way to get it to work again like it used to, I'd like to know. The only way I know to get it is to go to "www.r-project.org" -> Manuals -> "Writing R Extensions".

      From there, if I want to make a local copy, I must avoid the obvious File -> "Save Page As", because that gives me HTML. Instead, there is a "Save a copy" button in the upper left of the subwindow containing "R-exts.pdf", which I must press to get that particular document.

      Best Wishes,
      Spencer
