Thanks. However, I'm now getting a weird problem trying to print the help
file called Random.


gives me

Random.user(base)       User-supplied Random Number Generation
Random(base)            Random Number Generation

Now I get

> help("Random",offline=TRUE)
Error in help("Random", offline = TRUE) : No documentation for `Random' in
specified packages and libraries:
  you could try `help.search("Random")'

But Random.user works fine with identical syntax. What is wrong?

                                          Best regards, Faheem.
