Dear R-helpers,

    I just upgraded from version 62.1 to 62.2 and now am faced with the
same problem I've run into before when upgrading:
  Is there an easy way to take the libraries I have been using in the
older version and pull then into the new version.  My organization looks
like this on Solaris 2.5.2:

  /opt -- /R
             -- /R-0.62.1
		  -- subdirectories for lots of packages like:
			MASS,  clus, lme, VR, date, design, mva
			WaveThresh, splines, acepack, eda, stepfun,etc.
             -- /R-0.62.2
                   -- base, mva, eda, stepfun

  I would like to move the other libraries from
/opt/R/R-0.62.1/library to /opt/R/R-0.62.2/library and install them.
Does anyone have a Perl program or shell script built for this purpose?
(Or is it an Install option I've missed?)
