Search Packages and Functions on R-Project Help pages and RDocumentation


s_sos searchs in all R documentation packages and functions that contain one or several keywords, open the default browser and display the results in a html page. For one or two keywords, s_sos may find more results than s_crandb as it goes deeper in the documentation, down to the function level. An internet connection is required to reach the website maintained by the R-Project which replaced the University of Pennsylvania during year 2021.

s_sos is a minimal wrapper of the function sos::findFn. Use directly the package sos and read its vignette for advanced search options.


s_sos(..., char = NULL)



any format recognized by cnsc, except list. One or several keywords.


(name to) a character vector. Use this argument if ... fails or if you call the function from another function. If used, argument ... is ignored.
