Which S-PLUS?  The version of lme in S-PLUS 2000 (and the announced 6.0)
is closely related to that in the add-on package nlme available
from CRAN (version numbers 3,x).  Earlier versions of S-PLUS are based on
nlme2 and have a different syntax.  I suggest you use the nlme3
version even if you have to convert example S-PLUS code. (Both
Pinheiro & Bates' book and V&R3 use the nlme syntax.)

(Recent version of what?  R's current philosophy is to have a fairly
small core and lots of fairly small add-on packages, some of which ship
with R and more of which are on CRAN.  At present that's needed for
memory and performance reasons.  It's also helpful to distribute R in
fairly small pieces for download.)
