Dear People,

I just thought I would point out what looks like a minor error in "Writing
R Extensions", version 1.2.1. On pg 52 it lists

"double fmod (double x) Returns the absolute value of value of x."

The actual function in /src/nmath/fmod.c appears to be:

 *    double fmod(double x, double y);
 *    Floating-point remainder of x / y;

There does not seem to be another function by the same name. 

                                  Sincerely, Faheem Mitha.
