Ah, the fun of using general search engines (like the Goog) to find R help can be a real…adventure. But have no fear there are better ways to get the info you need!
1. Within R itself is the handy RSiteSearch() function that opens a web browser and sends your request to the r-project search page.
2. Various specialty search sites have been popping up all over the place. So far, I’ve been particularly pleased with rseek.org.
3. I haven’t used it but www.dangoldstein.com/search_r.html is supposed to do a similar type thing.
So, there you have it, no more excuses, let SPSS go.
