I started studying Bioinformatics at my engineering school (INSA de 
lyon!) in september. We started learning statistics and did two classes 
of R hands-on, but I want to learn to use R better. (As in for my every 
day calculations - I'm in front of a computer anyway so why should I 
have to take out my TI-30?) I'm having trouble finding some of the 
simpler stat functions though. (despite help.search()-ing quite a bit)
	How can I calculate a factorial (as in 5! = 5*4*3*2*1)?
	How can I calculate Cnp,  the number of combinations of p elements 
out of n elements? I found binomial() but that is the binomial law and 
not simply Cnp.

	Does anyone have a *simple* R reference sheet for R beginners who 
only want to do simple things?

thanks in advance,
