It's a *package*, not a library !
Note that there are also the "comment" and
"comment<-" function pair (in R's base) that you could use :
> x <- 1:10
> comment(x) <- "this is the price of the R stock"
> x
[1] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
> comment(x)
[1] "this is the price of the R stock"
> comment(x+4)
[1] "this is the price of the R stock"
[these are probably among the oldest R (non-S) functions,
maybe not known for this reason, and not really used in other
public functions AFAIK]
