According to the R language manual, "%" is the modulus operator. However, on
both Windows and Linux, I get a syntax error when I type
records <- 100000
records % 1000
I tried wrapping the operands with "as.integer ()" but that didn't help either.
This is version 1.2.2 of R; I haven't had a chance to try it with R-1.2.3 yet,
but it does fail for me on both Windows 2000 and Red Hat Linux 7.1.
