In the document "An introduction to R", the info node "Customizing the
has the following code snippet:

     > .Last <- function() {
       graphics.off()                        # a small safety measure.
       cat(paste(system.date(),"\nAdios\n")) # Is it time for lunch?

I think "system.date()" should now be replaced just by "date()".

version 1.2.0).
