I can get a function by just typing the name in the console, but how can I get all the functions in a package? the ./R/ subdirectory has files xx.rdb and xx.rdx which I can not decompress with 7-zip or with unzip, unrar etc. The help files are compressed with gzip in the ./man/ folder and can be unzipped easily.

You are looking in a binary package.

Instead of that, just download a source package (i.e. a not yet compiled 
one) from CRAN where you find the sources in plain text.
