Dear useR

I want to know why package gregmisc did not work very
well. I did not find this package in my library

> local({a <- CRAN.packages()
+ install.packages(select.list(a[,1],,TRUE),
.libPaths()[1], available=a, dependencies=TRUE)})

Error in library(gregmisc) : There is no package
called 'gregmisc'

I use windows 2000 Professional and R version 2.0.0
> version
platform i386-pc-mingw32
arch     i386           
os       mingw32        
system   i386, mingw32

minor    0.0            
year     2004           
month    10             
day      04             
language R              
Then I check:
package gregmisc only warning on R-1.9.1 not R-2.0.0
