The bottom part of a help entry typically gives some references (see Figure 1-22) and some other related commands. In Windows or Macintosh, these are hyperlinks so you can click them and jump to their help entries. In Linux the help is plain text so there are no hyperlinks. start() and brought up the HTML help system in your web browser, the hyperlinks do appear. ” These examples can be copied to the clipboard and pasted into the main command console so you can see what they do.

You can use these like any other value in further calculations. 20986 > ans3 = ans2 + 9 - 2 + pi In these examples the = sign is used. This is perfectly logical but R allows you an alternative. In older versions of R and in most of the help examples you will see that the = sign is rarely used and a sort of arrow is used instead.
