Sometimes it's in <function_name>.default  Eg:

> barplot
function (height, ...) 
<environment: namespace:graphics>

> barplot.default
function (height, width = 1, space = NULL, names.arg = NULL, 
    legend.text = NULL, beside = FALSE, horiz = FALSE, density = NULL, 
    angle = 45, col = NULL, border = par("fg"), main = NULL, 
    sub = NULL, xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL, xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, 
    xpd = TRUE, axes = TRUE, axisnames = TRUE, cex.axis = par("cex.axis"), 
    cex.names = par("cex.axis"), inside = TRUE, plot = TRUE, 
    axis.lty = 0, offset = 0, ...) 
    if (!missing(inside)) 
        .NotYetUsed("inside", error = FALSE)
    if (missing(space)) 
        space <- if (is.matrix(height) && beside) 
            c(0, 1)

etc etc

hi all

how can i see the code inside a particular function? i know one can
simply type the function, eg ls, but sometimes when this is done one
will get "UseMethod("some function name"). (One could also use "body"
but i have the same problem in this case. )How does one see the code in
this case?
