Hi emacs users,

after some googeling, I found out that setting:

export PAGER=/bin/cat

before starting R after using ssh.el to connect to a remote server gets rid of some errors with the help system. However, the help is now shown in the main console which I do not find very handy. I there any setting so that the help page is shown in another emacs buffer (or a browser html page) as with a locally started R instance using ess?
