Thanks Jim and Henrique for your replies. I would like to know why some
particular functions are asterisked? What is the pros and cons while making
a typical UDF asterisked? How can I make a typical function asterisked? For
example print.anova() is not asterisked however print.acf() is. How can I
make print.anova() asterisked? 

Thanks and regards,
