\title{ Generate all combinations of the elements of x taken m at a time. }
\description{
             Generate all combinations of the elements of x taken m at a time.
             If x is a positive integer,  returns all combinations
             of the elements of seq(x) taken m at a time.
             If argument "fun" is not null,  applies a function given
             by the argument to each point.  If simplify is FALSE,  returns
             a list; else returns a vector or an array.  "..." are passed
             unchanged to function given by argument fun,  if any.

         combn2:Generate all combinations of the elements of x taken two at a time.
         If x is missing,  generate all combinations of 1:n taken two
         at a time (that is,  the indices of x that would give all
         combinations of the elements of x if x with length n had been given).
         Exactly one of arguments "x" and "n" should be given; no provisions
         for function evaluation.

nCm: Compute the binomial coefficient ("n choose m"),  where n is any
real number and m is any integer.  Arguments n and m may be vectors;
they will be replicated as necessary to have the same length.
Argument tol controls rounding of results to integers.  If the
difference between a value and its nearest integer is less than tol,
the value returned will be rounded to its nearest integer.  To turn
off rounding, use tol = 0.  Values of tol greater than the default
should be used only with great caution, unless you are certain only
integer values should be returned.
