Many readers on this list probably don't know that S Poetry
had an old home.  S Poetry is a book in pdf about programming
in the S language.  It was written mainly with S-PLUS 3.x in
mind when R was still an infant relative to what it is now.

Some parts of the book are still quite accurate for R.  In other
places R is rather different from what is in the book.  The FAQ
on the differences between R and S-PLUS at the R Project is
a good mediator between R and S Poetry.

S Poetry can be found on http://www.burns-stat.com/

Also on that site in the public domain area are three  functions
that run in both R and S-PLUS (corner, head, tail).  These are
useful interactively and occasionally in programming.

There is also a tutorial -- really an advertisement -- on the S
