 I've installed `R', and am beginning to learn about it.  I found a
 copy of "The New S Language", which has a copyright dated 1988.  The
 `R' README says it's 1998 though.  Is there a newer version, or is
 the README in error?

 Has anyone tried to get them to release the sources to the Blue Book?
 It says it was typeset with `troff'.  What are the odds they'd do
 that?  Do they still sell `S'?

 Do I own a rare book?  Or are there enough copies out there to meet
 demand?  Maybe I should memorize and eat it.

A few months in the laboratory often saves several hours at the library.
