Hello R People:

Suppose I create a function, x.e, via the fix command:

> x.e <- fix(x.e)

When I type in x.e, the function code appears, along
with the name/number of the environment.

However, if I create a function, y.e, and source it in, when
I type in y.e, the function code only displays(no

Why is this, please?  (It's not a bug....I just wondered).

I am using R-1.1.0 for Windows.
