Well, in 1.7.0 full install on Mac OS X (someone made an image with
most of the packages and that is what I installed) help.search
("zscore") just returns R.base without any other info (of course, it
was the search). help("zscore") return not found and help("zscore",
package=R.base) return "R.base is built for Win32". Which is very
wierd. I tried quitting R (it had been on a week or so) in case some
package I loaded removed it or something. However, that didn't recover
it. Then, I quit R again and lo and behold I get a full help for
zscore telling me "Gets the Z scores (standardized residuals)..." BUT,
when I call the function it still says "Error: couldn't find function
"zscore". This is very strange. I'll try scale and see if it does
what I wanted. zscore sounded perfect though. If I could clean up
this problem I would, but I don't know if it is a function that was
pulled, a function missing, or what the actual state is supposed to be.
