+our approach to overload function \code{q} by method dispatch does not work
+from an \texttt{RStudio} console (it does work, though within a function 
+environment). To overcome this, from version 2.6 on, we have aliases 
+\code{p.r} and \code{q.l} for functions \code{p} and \code{q}, alluding to
+the right (resp. left) continous form of the cdf and the quantile function.
+these two aliases (in particular \code{q.l}) do work in \texttt{RStudio}.

 \code{sd=1.3} and let \code{P}  an object of class \code{"Pois"} with parameter
