Any of these google searches will find it:
The first hit on the first two give a thread on r-help which, if followed,
gives the answer. The first hit on the third points to Jonathan Baron's
reference card which has it.
Also if you go to the R web site, click on search in the left hand pane
and try some of the R specific site searches -- these will also find it.
Finally, the R language manual, obtainable under windows by going into R
and clicking on Help and then Manual and then R Language Manual or in
doc/manual subdirectory in the R directory on your disk.
None of this is not to say that the help should not point to it, of course.
