Dear all!!

I am using R1.4.1 on windows 98.
I had been trying to organize the package and has already been able to
document some of the functions in to .Rd (R documentation) files. From these
.Rd files I generated plain text files as well as html files.
I have also given the 00Index file in each of the directories:

Problem: I don't get the help using comand "help" after loading the package
using library command. Some how the html index gets updated and the help is
available in the link of packages in html help pages.

I tried using the command:
> Rcmd build,
gives the following error
* checking for file `pubbias/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* preparing `pubbias':
* checking whether `INDEX' is up-to-date ... OK
* checking whether `data/00Index' is up-to-date ... O
* removing junk files
* building `pubbias_1.0.tar.gz'
Bad command or file name
Bad command or file name

So I organized it mannually to pubbias.zip.

any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you,
