Thanks! I will try it.

My spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

In the trunk I get from this:

svn checkout https://svn.r-project.org/ESS/trunk

I don't find anything you are referring to.

I find same thing I had found before,


and I've tested that, but it does not put color on functions like lm
or mean or whatnot.

Am I barking up the wrong trunk? (Please remember, we are never too
busy for a pun.)
