Small bug in RStudio help viewer: base::+ link says "Link in package base could not be located"

base-r

#1

I searched for arithmetic help using ??Arithmetic. The first option on the list was base::+, which is a link to http://127.0.0.1:39186/help/library/base/html/+.html. The other links on this page worked fine within the RStudio IDE, but this one says Link in package base could not be located.

Best wishes all!

What other options are you seeing in this list? For me, when I execute ?Arithmetic the documentation defined in the base package is immediately opened. Do you have another package installed / loaded providing documentation for a topic called Arithmetic?

Hi Kevin!

I typed ??Arithmetic with a double question mark, which brings up a whole list of pages, including the one with a link which fails, rather than ?Arithmetic with a single question mark, which indeed brings up that one page from the base package.

Best wishes,

Julian
