Hi,

Does anyone know how to print help files from R's prompt?

One can read the help text for read.table by doing

> ?read.table

on the R prompt. In a similar fashion, can I print the help read.table without having to resort to a web browser?

Please CC me on any reply.

                                                         Thanks, Faheem.
