[R] Cleaning things up?

Ok, that's sounds reasonable for the future. The problem I have is that I
have close to 500 items returning from length(ls()) many of which are
function I've created on the fly and they interact with each other. I know
it's a mess and this the reason for my query, I'd like to clean it up. I
mean separating functions from other objects (saving them, document them and
etc.) and do as you suggest for the future.

So I ask again, is there a way to do that or do I have to do it all by
"hand" one at a time?
