Hi there,

I am interested in the inner workings of wilcox.test:

 > wilcox.test
function (x, ...)
<environment: namespace:stats>

how can I get at the code, if it is R-code? For Methods one should be able to learn what extension to use, but here default or such do not help.

Is there a wayplot.default to learn which different versions of "plot" there are except trying plot.lm,  ...
