The zeroth lesson is how to find this out for 
yourself. The manual entry [R] summarize 
and on-line help for -summarize- certainly 
explain this. It is a bit trickier to find out 
what it does by trying it out, as it leaves 
no output in the Results window, but only 
a set of results that may be seen by typing -return 
list-. But that's explained in the sources
mentioned.
