Subject: R-alpha: BOUNCE r-testers  --> PGilbert: source()

The mailing list software 'majordomo' tries to protect the list from
"invalid" mailings, currently mainly from things that should go to
R-testers-request  instead of  

Anyway, the following was one of those messages,
('get' as the first word out of 2 or 3 words on a line by itself....)

Note: I did not write majordomo,
but I may consider changing it's severeness in these things....

Subject: source

I'm having trouble sourcing files with many functions defined in them.
It looks a bit like the call to eval in source is trying to interpret
the first argument in the wrong frame. Does anyone know how to fix or
get around this.

>  source("dse1a.s")
Error: Object "i" not found

Error: 0 arguments passed to "sys.parent" which requires 1.
