- In this tutorial, any line beginning with the # character is a comment and is ignored by R. I use these comments to show the expected output from R.
- Any line beginning with the > character indicates the R command prompt. You can copy and paste from this tutorials, but don't paste in the ">" character. Later on we will omit this character.

# This is how to start the main help system in R > help.start()
The above line starts the web-browser on your computer and shows you the Help system for R. You can click on the links to get different levels of help.
