Nothing in R restricts the idea of length to time series. 

> length(c(1:5))
[1] 5
> length("Bob Yaffee")
[1] 1
> length(c("Bob", "Yaffee", "loves", "time", "series"))
[1] 5

I'd surmise on no evidence at all that S-PLUS is identical on this
point.

  In R or S+, length refers to the number of observations in a time
series dataset.
