There's a typo in the definition of the Gamma function in help(Special)
i.e. the file


Looks like "a" should be replaced by "x" in the equation on line 63:

\deqn{\Gamma(x) = \int_0^\infty t^{a-1} e^{-t} dt}{integral_0^Inf 
t^(a-1) exp(-t) dt}

I checked this is still in current r-patched and r-devel.
