\title{ Applies a function to all pairs of columns }
Given an nxp matrix \code{m} and a function \code{f},
returns the pxp matrix got by applying \code{f}  to all pairs of columns of \code{m} .

colpairs(m, f, diag = 0, na.omit = FALSE, ...)
%- maybe also 'usage' for other objects documented here.
  \item{m}{ a matrix }
  \item{f}{ a function of two vectors, which returns a single result. }
  \item{diag}{ if supplied, this value is placed on the diagonal of the
result. }
  \item{na.omit}{ If \code{TRUE}, rows with missing values are omitted for each pair
of columns. }
  \item{\dots}{ argments are passed to \code{f}. }
