Hi all,

After replying to r-help earlier today on the merge() related thread, I noted a trivial grammatical error in the description for the 'suffixes' argument in it's help file.

A patch against the current SVN trunk version of merge.Rd in ..library/base/man is attached and pasted here:

--- merge1.Rd	2016-06-08 13:34:35.000000000 -0500
+++ merge2.Rd	2016-06-08 14:03:34.000000000 -0500

    \code{\link{match}}.  This is intended to be used for merging on one
