[R] The following object(s) are masked from ‘package:stats’

My apologies in advance as this seem like an easy thing to fix.

I am quite new to using R. I am doing my thesis at the moment and I am
trying to use the extremes package. However, when I try to access it I get
this message:

The following object(s) are masked from ‘package:stats’:
> library( extRemes)
Loading required package: tcltk
Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Loading required package: ismev
Loading required package: Lmoments
Attaching package: ‘extRemes’
The following object(s) are masked from ‘package:stats’:
qqnorm, qqplot

I looked back on some of the older post about this problem. Apparently it
has something to do with the order of the packages.

> search()
 [1] ".GlobalEnv"        "package:extRemes"  "package:Lmoments" 
"package:ismev"     "package:tcltk"     "package:stats"    
"package:graphics"  "package:grDevices"
 [9] "package:utils"     "package:datasets"  "package:methods"   "Autoloads"        
> attach(stats)
Error in attach(stats) : object 'stats' not found

However, I still could not get it working.

Thanks for any help in advance
