I'm reading Ripley's book of "Modern Applied Statistics with
S-PLUS". It says that the objects will be stored in the .Data
sub-directory of current working directory. I have searched around in
my system and can't find such dir. Any ideas?
1. That book has two authors.
2. That book is currently in 4th edition. The title of the fourth edition
is slightly different, to reflect the coverage of R. You are probably
reading an older edition (you didn't say), which does not cover R. In that
case you should consider `upgrading'.
