       This went to R-help;
       it should have gone to ESS-help instead
       --> hence I forward this.		Martin Maechler

Subject: [R] Xemacs do not want to execute help.start() with R1.9.1

Hi all,
I 've just reinstalled from the scratch my Windows 2000 (Italian version)
on a formatted HD, because I like to clean
the environment from time to time (say once a year).

I'm currently using XEmacs-21.4.13 and R (rw1091)
and Xemacs is configured as described in

The problem is that the command
added in the  c\Program Files\R\rw1091\etc\Rprofile
do not work and I receive from Xemacs at the startup the following two
Error: couldn't find function "help.start"
> options(STERM='iESS', editor='winclient.exe'> >
If I type
in the upper as well as in the lower window,
the HTML help start in a new window.

This happened also before the reinstallation of the whole OS,
but it did not happened when I was running a previous R version (1.7.??)

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your time.
