I have seen someone else complaining about this a few weeks ago. It seems 
that the DOC [is being | will be] changed. That's because print is a 
statement; if you look at the reference manual index, there [is | was] no 
section on 'built-in statements' like print.

p.s for you to feel better: a few days ago I could not remember the print 
to file syntax, and could nbot find it in the help after a simple search 
(just as you did). Then I did some interactive experiments to sort out the 
argument order (is it 'print >> file, ...' or 'print file >> ...'? :-).
