I'm starting working myself in the use of R, reading M. J. Crawley, The
R Book. The problem I do encounter is concerning the commands apropos
and find:

> apropos(edit)
Fehler: is.character(what) is not TRUE
> find(edit)
Fehler: is.character(what) is not TRUE

I get the same error message typing anything else instead of "edit".

The command ?edit seems to work well.

What could be the reason for that I can't use apopos and find?
Thanks for your help!
