Windows binaries at CRAN (bin/windows/Windows-NT/base) have been updated
to R-1.1.1. See below for a list of Windows-specific changes.
(for the R-core team)
Windows-specific changes to R
New file README.Rterm providing basic documentation on Rterm.exe.
undoc() is now available under Windows.
There is a new script R_HOME/bin/build.sh, a version of R CMD build.
You will need R_HOME set as an environment variable to use it, and you
will need the full set of tools from tools.zip (see readme.packages)
in your path.
The batch wrappers to Perl files Rdconv.bat Rdindex.bat Rd2txt.bat
Sd2Rd.bat have been revised to work on more Perl/OS versions.
Setting cell widths from the menu in the data editor now works reliably.
Having an empty line at the beginning of .Rhistory no longer breaks the
history-recall mechanism in Rgui.
Characters using the AltGr key now work in interactive use of Rterm.
(AltGr used to work like Alt.)
Ctrl+V now works as described in a pager (pasting to the console).
Other versions of Tcl/Tk may be used by setting TCL_VERSION in
MkRules (but only 8.31 has been tested).
A file Makevars.win in the src directory of a package will be used in
preference to a file Makevars.
The Makefiles for packages now allow C++ code (with extension .cc or
.cpp or .C) in the src directory.
If you use a private library and HTML help, you need to copy R.css
from rw1011\library to each private library directory.
Function win.version() should give slightly more information (the
latest service pack number x.y) on Windows 2000.
