Dear R-Devel subsriber,

during the set-up of a package with a NAMESPACE I stumbled over the
following warning during:

R CMD check -l c:/R/package smem

## skipped output
* checking for missing documentation entries ... WARNING
Undocumented S4 methods:
  generic 'show' and siglist 'equation'
All user-level objects in a package (including S4 classes and methods)
## skipped output

However, I do have in the Rd.-file for class 'equation' an \alias{} as:

\alias{show, equation-method}

and I have included in the same file:

    \item{show}{\code{signature(object = "equation")}: Prints the
      formula and the type of an equation.}

The show-method for objects of class 'equation' is defined as:

setMethod("show", signature(object = "equation"), function(object){
  print(object at formula)
  cat(paste("Type of equation:", object at type, "\n"))

In the NAMESPACE, I have included:


Any pointers are most welcome.
