Hola!

Experimenting a little, package fda seems very much under development, and help pages are definitely not finished. It would certainly help to read the book "functional data analysis" by the author of fda, which is in our library. On the other hand package mgcv is more mature, so it would seem easier to use that.

It is not totally automatic, but the example ink1">library(mgcv)
ink1">example(mono.con)

has everything necessary to get started.
