[R] Stumped on methods

I have been trying to write a "proper" print method for a package, and have 
almost gotten what I want. From a reading of the relevant section in R 
Extensions and the introduction to methods, I've stuck the whole business 
into a character object and used:


However, instead of not printing quotes and displaying the usual 
representation of the string, I get the whole string, newlines and all, in 
quotes. My attempt to shamelessly copy someone else's print method 
was foiled as most of them don't display when one types the function name. I 
presume this is a feature of namespaces.

Needless to say, searching the archives for "print & method" retrieved a 
cornucopia of useless information. I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to 
inform me where to look for the proper incantation? Thanks.
