Pardon for the elementary question, I did try searching the archives
with various terms, but to no avail.  I am using R1.9.1 on a windows

One of the great advantages of R (to me, anyway) is being able to see
the code for a function , e.g. by typing sd one sees the code for
getting a standard deviation.

However, for many functions this only provides info. including
UseMethod, eg. typing mosaicplot yields

function (x, ...) 
<environment: namespace:graphics>

How can I see the code for such functions?

Thanks in advance as always
