:> When I had said:
:> >> R can't handle files named x.  If I can use Splus, should I just do that?

to which I've had the reply (sorry lost attribution but this mailer
is cack for handling mailing lists):

:It was a problem with data frames (not 'files') named 'x'.

ah, well, my typo in the original post.

:I may be stating the obvious, but I think some people on this list may
:have taken exception at the tone of your first message which had (whether
:intentionally or not) a tone of "R doesn't work, what are you going to do
:about it?"  

then that I will apologise for -- the tone of my message was meant to be --
"I'm having problems and is that normal?"

:No-one gets paid to develop R, they don't care whether you us

I realise it's a labour of love and am greatly impressed by the folk
who have devised & maintain it.  In no way did I mean to sound like I was
'blaming' anybody for my problems.  I wasn't looking for a
solution to my technical probs but rather trying to find out more
about whether it would be worth my while to continue using R.

Honest.  Sometimes you have to read messages literally.

Don't worry -- I'm unsubscribing -- you'll all be rid of me.  -julii
