Repeating my R-help message of 2/18/03, for R-1.6.2 under Solaris 2.6:
1) In my .Rprofile: options(download.file.method="wget")
(The default method "internal" does not seem to work for me.)
2) In my .cshrc: setenv http_proxy <some.proxy.server>:8000
3) <some.proxy.server> is NOT the name I find in my web browser! The web
browser knows the machine that serves "Proxy Auto-Configuration" files, but
I needed to get the name of an actual proxy server from our local guru.
