Dear R users and developers,

I'm trying to build a package. The R CMD build works fine.

The R CMD check produces allways the following error:

  installing indices
Can`t locate File/Basename.pm in @ING (@ING contains: D:/../rw1090/share/perl d:/../rw1090/lib .) at D:/../rw1090/share/perl/build-help-windows.pl line 20. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at D:/../rw1090/share/perl/build-help-windows.pl line 20.
Make[2]: *** [indices] Error 2
Make[1] *** [all] Error 2
Make: *** [pkg-myyfunction] Error 2
*** Installation of myyfunction failed ***


bulid-help-windows.pl at line 20 contains:     use File::Basename;

library(myyfunction) works, but I have no documentation for my function. The documentation in the man-directory contains \name, \alias, \title, \description and \keyword, which I have filled correctly.

I haven't found something to solve my problem in the writing R extensions manual or in the readme.package file.

Can anybody help me again please?

(I´m working with R 1.9.0 on Windows XP, Perl 5.8.3)
