[R] creating help files

Dear R-help,

I'm trying to create a help file for a data set. The existing help files
tell me I should use the prompt(data.set) command which creates an editable
file, and then move the file to the appropriate directory. This is the output

> prompt(charac)
created file named  charac.Rd  in the current directory.
  Edit the file and move it to the appropriate directory,

The problem is that D:\rw0640 doesn't have a subdirectory named src. Am I
missing something implied by the forward instead of back slashes? I am
using R 64.0 on windows NT, which I set up using binaries as opposed to
building from source.

On a completely different matter, I have a colleague who is new to R/S/S+
but would like to use R. He would like to attend an introductory course,
preferably in the UK. Where should he look to find such courses?

Any help is gratefully received.

Simon Bond.
