I have posted a new version of my document on R.
I have corrected a number of errors and moved much of the
detailed material on data structures to follow the chapter
on exploration of multivariate data. I have changed the name;
it is now:
   Using R for Data Analysis and Graphics - An Introduction

The new document lives at:

My web page has information on where to find scripts
and data sets (in the directories scripts/ and dsets/).
There are now separate scripts for each chapter,
except that 1&2 have been combined and 3&4 are

I changed the name because John Braun and myself want
to use Data Analysis & Graphics Using R as the name for
the monograph that we are writing.

Thanks to those who responded to the recent question
re use of
   austpop <- read.table("austpop.txt", header=T)
I'll look at whether I can make my document clearer.

I am unsure what I need to do to get the "contributed
documentation" section on CRAN updated.  Do I upload
it to ftp://cran.r-project.org/incoming/
as for code contributions?
