We have all been in the position of trying to find the name of a command in a language, particularly if you are not totally sure of the full command name.
I’ve been working with R a lot recently and in particular Oracle R Enterprise. I was always trying to remember what the full command name was. Then I found the apropos function. The apropos function allows you to search R for commands based on a part or partial name. You can use regular expression syntax to define what part of the function name you are looking for.
What I ended up using most often was the following command. This function call looks for all functions being with ‘ore‘.
To find out more about how to use the apropos command check out the R help.
