You want to use the first example you listed, Source won't work because
of the capital 'S'.  See ?source.  It simply reads in R code or data.
That means you file is not in your working directory.  Do a file search
for your filename and put the full path in the source command and it
should work.

When I read the fBasics doc, it shows code that can make data sets
available to you. Yet, when I follow the doc, The command exactly in the
example, I get an doesn't seem to work. 




I get cannot open file for the former and could not find function SOURCE
for the latter.

If someone has time, would they to take a look at page 16 of the fBasics
Doc. Maybe your doc is more updated so it's the part where they load the
downjones 30 data ).
and follow the code and see if anything comes up for you.  I was going
to send this to R-help but I try to limit my bothers  to one per day max
and I already used my allotment for the day.  

My info is below. Thanks.
