Hello -
I am a fairly new user of R. I currently have R1.7 installed. I tried to
install the KernSmooth package but a message tells me I need R1.8. Is there
a way to update to R1.8 while in R1.7 in the same manner that I can use
"update.packages", or do I have to install R1.8 in a separate directory and
re-install the many packages I have already installed in R1.7? Thanks in
advance for your help -
