What exactly do you mean by this?  What would you call Rgui.exe?

That sounds more like a question for S-news than R-help...  In any case, my
impression is that commands linked to the S-PLUS GUI menus and buttons are
functions written for that.  You're not likely to learn much that will carry
over to R.
