R 2.15.2 installed as a regular user on Windows 7.
1. There is a start menu item for "R 2.15.2 Help" that opens a local web
page. If I click on packages, then base, then abbreviate I get
"Firefox can't find the file at
The page before, which did display, was
(the link that fails is being tried with the same file:///C:/ start,
despite the text in the error message).
Is this a bug? Is there a way I can fix it?
2. ?'&&' produces "No documentation for ''&&'' in the specified packages
and libraries". This used to work. Is this failure expected?
Actually, I just discovered it works from the main R application. The
failure is from ESS 12.09-1 on emacs 24.2.1, both of which were the
latest as of last week.
3. Are the manuals available as info files (for use in emacs) anymore?
I notice the FAQ ("2.7 What documentation exists for R?") does not list it.
