for pd-vanilla, right-click anywhere in an empty space, and select help.
for pd-extended, there isn't one. my list (attached) is the most complete  
I know, although it's never actual. the pd-floss website also has a list,  
but only with part of the objects in this document.

or rather more because development of pd-extended externals is a bit  
chaotic, some developers don't do proper documentation, there isn't a  
system to control the quality (or existence) of documentation, etc...

Jonathan Wilkes has done lots of work with pddp to update the  
documentation. Pd-Ext 0.43 has much more ressources, including better help  
patches for pd-vanilla. Also the object completion plugin helps to find  
objects (pd-ext 0.43).
