Thanks for your suggestions. I think the feature Stephen writes about is
the one I am looking for. However I did not manage to activate it. This
may be due to me beeing rather new to emacs. I added:
to my .emacs file, opened an *.R file and started R (M-x R). Where are the infos form the feature now meant to appear?
Do I have to install/copy some files for the ess-eldoc tool somewhere?
Thanks a lot!
