Thanks for pointing me in right direction, both solutions are wonderful.
Yes I made a mistake for 100k.

I have one doubt though, how does one locate packages that's
available for specific task (like this one). Does one look at package
index (http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/web/packages/index.html).
or is there any other trick?

I tried "help.search("string")" and also looked at help.start()
but I think it just displays whats available on my machine.

Regards and Thanks
