I have encountered an issue with TeXmacs and R 2.0.0, and I've found a
somewhat unsatisfying workaround. My apologies if this is old news to
the R-Devel list.
TeXmacs has the ability to start up an R session and copy the session
input and output into a working document. The way it does this involves
starting R and executing
in the R session. The library was built with R 1.7.1, and hence will not
work with R 2.0.0 or later.
The workaround is (as "root"):
and remove the line at the bottom that starts with "Built:"
R CMD build --force TeXmacs
R CMD INSTALL -l `pwd` TeXmacs_0.1.tar.gz
My question is this: do I actually need to do the INSTALL, or is the
build, followed by deleting the built package, enough? I've passed what
I know so far on to the TeXmacs team; eventually they will incorporate
some cleaner fix into their code, but I have no idea exactly how that
will work, since they need to be able to work with older versions of R
