If you are already using RKWard, it has a spreadsheet-style editor. Click
on the Workspace button on the upper left and you will see a list of all
objects (the second part of your question), including variables, data
frame, and open packages. Then if you right click on the name of a data
frame and select Edit from the context menu, you will see a
spreadsheet-style editor.
