 I think you misunderstood the mention of 'Stackoverflow'. This is a
solution, not a problem!

 StackOverflow (www.stackoverflow.com) is a question-and-answer
website for programmers questions, part of the 'Stack Exchange'
network of Q&A sites. Questions on R programming are often asked
there, and live quite happily amongst the C, Python, Java etc

 Questions (and answers) can have rich text, maths, images etc,
included, can be edited, ranked, bookmarked, deleted, tagged, marked
as duplicate, flagged as useless etc etc by the users.

 As with any community there's some rules - for example don't ask a
question thats mostly statistical (with a bit of R) on
www.stackoverflow.com - that should go to www.crossvalidated.com. And
as usual, try and create examples that people can cut and paste to
duplicate your problem.

 Head on over, sign up, and ask! There's also a chat forum:
