   We have made minor revision of the NuPoP package such that the revised version does not pass character strings from R to Fortran. This revised package has been tested working properly. We would like to replace the NuPoP package at Bioconductor.org by the attached one.  Please advise if anything else we should do or correct. Thanks for help.

    This come from the NEWS item
         • The use of a character vector with .Fortran() is formally
           deprecated and gives a non-portability warning.  (It has long
           been strongly discouraged in ‘Writing R Extensions’.)
    (It is even less portable than we had previously thought.)  Please avoid 
    it (and it is liable to be removed before too long): the preferred way 
    to do that is to use .Call with a C wrapper calling the Fortran code.
