i've been trying to get an idea about the implementation of the mas 5 
backgound adjustment in the affy package. where it says in the sadd

a(x,y) = max( i(x,y)-b(x,y) , nf*n(x,y) ) where

i've just been able to find the first line implemented. where did i miss the 
second line? or is it not implemented becaus .5 is so small that it should
