Spencer: Thanks very much for the response, I did install RSiteSearch,
however when I am trying out
tD <- RSiteSearch.function('timeDate') command I am getting the following
error.
> tD <- RSiteSearch.function('timeDate')
Error: could not find function "RSiteSearch.function"
Do I have to install anything else?
Regards
Arup

First you need to examine the results of each step to isolate the
problem.
When I tried to replicate your problem, I first replaced
"as.data.frame(scan(...))" with the following:
DF <- read.table('ibm1.txt', header=TRUE, sep='|')
I also replaced "df" by "DF", because "df" is the function for the
density of an F distribution, and I'd prefer not to mask that with a
data.frame.
After that, I solved the problem by studying the examples in the
help file for "timeDate".
To get there, however, I found that there were two functions
called "timeDate", in packages "timeDate" and "fCalendar". I found this
as follows:
library(RSiteSearch)
tD <- RSiteSearch.function('timeDate')
sum(tD$Function=='timeDate')
HTML(tD[tD$Function=='timeDate', ])
These two functions are probably identical, but I don't know that.
Hope this helps.
