When I type

ls("package:base", pattern="log*")
functions with names like "floor" and
"Sys.setlocale" are included. I don't
think this is how "*" is supposed to work.

ls("packge:base", pattern="logg*")

I thought "log*" means "log" followed by

Thanks for any tips.

(I'm using R-alpha as of a week ago, perhaps)
