  Dear list,

I know it must be obvious and I did my homework. (In fact I've RSiteSearched with keyword "remove AND library" but got timed out.(why?)....)

How do I unload a library? I don't mean getting ride of it permanently but just to unload it for the time being.

A related problem : I have some libraries loaded at startup in .First() which I have in .Rprofile. Now, I exited R and commented out the lines in .First(). Next time I launch R the same libraries are loaded again. I.e. there seems to be a memory of the old .First() somewhere which refuses to die.

Thanks in adv.

Horace
