  Somewhere within my "bbmisc" package bundle (available from
http://www.zoo.ufl.edu/bolker/R/linux or .../R/windows) is a package
"CRANsearch".  The function CRAN.create.index() downloads all of the
current package descriptions from
CRAN, processes them slightly, and stores a local copy.  One can then use
a function "help.search.CRAN" to do the equivalent of "help.search" over
all of those packages ...


cind <- create.CRAN.index()
help.search.CRAN("2SLS",cind) ## still doesn't work -- experts are better...
