A few simple questions from a novice R user. (I am running
R version 0.62.3 Beta (Sept 8, 1998) under Windows NT.)

1) How do I time the execution of a function/program in R
   for Windows? Is there the equivalent of a dos.time function?
2) Can anyone send me details on the random number generator
   used by R (period, etc.). Also, why is it different from
   the SuperDuper RNG in S?
3) Will there be an  l1fit  function in future releases
   of R?

Thanks in advance. FC.
