[R] Partek has Dunn-Sidak Multiple Test Correction. Is this the same/similar to any of R's p.adjust.methods?

The current R docu has

so both "BH" and "BY" ``are FDR versions''.
"fdr" was used - unfortunately - in some older versions of R,
so we kept it working as an *alias* for the time being.
You should rather not know about it :-)
and use "BH" or "BY" (and maybe other methods in the future) instead.
