Dear all,

I am writing my small working library. I have done most of the work and it
seems working well in R. The library name appears in the package list when
I type help.start().

Now my problem is about the help files. I have done help file in Rd format
and translated it to HTML format (I have a subdirectory (named html) with
html file in it and a subdirectory (named help) with .Rd files in it) .
What I want are:

1. I can use those help files when i open the help windows with help.start
2. When I type help(function name) in R command window, the help file will
jump out on the screen.

I think there must be some introduction somewhere. I couldn't find it in
'Writing R Extension'. Could anybody point out somewhere or some wayI can
implement the above two things?

Thanks a lot!
