Why should it not be PostScript?

Anyway, here is something:
In R (0.16),

  ls(.SystemEnv)	# gives you a list of all the 'built-in' functions.

  bi_ls(.SystemEnv); all.args <- sapply(bi, args); names(all.args) <- bi

  all.args ##--> a long list of all functions and their arguments
	   ## unfortunately, all the 'primitive' functions  show  'NULL'
	   ## instead of the proper arguments 

Also -- more sensibly --
after typing

	make install-html

you have the ``full'' Manual in HTML for "web" browsing in  ..RHOME/html/

We always have a new version "publicly" available

	(the current version is even newer than R ;-)
