8) Review Help and Documentation.

This Blog entry is from the Getting Started in R section in Learn R.

In the packages pane a list of all packages installed has been presented. Having followed previous Blog entries we know that ggplot2 is now installed.  It is customary for packages to carry good documentation,  which can be accessed by clicking on the hyperlink overlaying the package name:

Clicking on the link immediate navigation to the packages documentation takes place:

This feature provides a more intuitive means to navigate to documentation for functions. In this example,  scroll down and clock on the function link autoplot:

It can be seen that the documentation is displayed, navigating away from the index.
