[R] Help on getting help from manuals

A number of people have suggested "I read the manuals"...

Could someone help me by telling me where the primary start point is please?

For example, I am interested in writing functions with variable number of
arguments - where should I start to look?

"An introduction to R" only show a brief example - with no pointer to where
to find further data.

I can't do ?xxx from R console in most cases - as I don't know what the
function name is that I am looking for!!!

People have helped me find "substitute" to get some metadata out - BUT how
could I have found that without guidance from nice people in Nabble?

Any help on this very much appreciated.
