Package tseries: crash for Windows version (PR#2302)

Sun, 17 Nov 2002 20:58:01 +0100

I've got into another pb with R 1.6.1 (always under Windows 98):

help(sum, chmhelp=T)

this will open the file base.chm, if we close this help window =>
crash in R, with the following message:
"RGUI has caused a page failure in the library ITIRCL.dll at 0167:5d506e2a"

With another package, ex. help(garch, package=tseries, chmhelp=T), no problem.

Thanks in advance

sorry for that.
Yes, this too obvious  to not implement it. ;-)
Probably, most of us are not really making heavy use of medpolish(..)..
But thanks for the patch which I've even implemented 
for "R-patched" (even though it's not a bug fix, but a wish, as
you properly indicated).

it did, thanks.

fortunately, the R-devel forwarding had no wrap arounds.

BTW: The main reason for this reply is to test the new R-devel
     mailing list setup .. see my Friday posting (to R-devel) on
     this subject.
