lattice install (PR#1972)
Mon, 2 Sep 2002 07:59:11 +0100 (BST)
Note the R version (1.3).
grid and lattice have been part of the Windows binary distribution since
1.4.0. grid depends critically on the R version, so don't change it
unless you know exactly what you are doing.
library() in 1.6.0 will do a lot more checks of the package to be loaded.

Nope. What packages are available depends on the current .libPaths(),
hence can only be known at load time. There has been a long-term plan
that installing a package would also install its dependencies, but
the dynamic nature of R libraries (the dirs in which packages are
installed) makes this tricky.
