Thanks to all. I didn't
Realize that you
Got so many packages

I've used S+ for roughly
10 years on and off and
I am starting to switch over
( was finally forced to because my new company preferred me to use R for cost. I am the only user ) and it's unbelievable what has been done in R by everyone. Truly
amazing. You should
all be quite proud
about what you have created.

library() (no arguments) lists all the installed packages (by library).
