Last month I was ranting about the state of some of the examples in base-R, particularly the `paste`

function.

Martin Maechler has now kindly taken my suggested examples and added them into R. Hopefully this will reduce the number of newbie questions about “how do I join these strings together”.

Since Martin showed some interest in improving the state of the examples, I’ve given him updated content for another 30 or so help pages, and some Christmas homework of getting them into R too!
