[Rd] creating packages for Mac
Mon, 15 Oct 2001 19:19:27 +0200
If you don't need to compile binaries you should just give the .zip
archives to your students and they will work fine under R for MacOS.
If you need to compile .C of fortran sources you need the "machinery" as
on any other platform.
In the latest R-devel archive there are MPW makefiles that you can use
to build mac binaries yourself. For the time being, I can help you in
compiling sources and prepeare the script files. Let me know.
