Hi all,

Let me know if I need to ask this question of the bioconductor group.
I used the bioconductor utility to install this package and also the
CRAN package.install function.

My computer crashed a week ago. Today I reinstalled all my
bioconductor/R packages. One of my scripts is giving me the following

in my script I set:

and receive this error:
Error : could not find function "print.xtable"

This is a new error and I cannot find the source.

I reinstalled xtable with the messages below(which are the same
whether I use CRAN or bioconductor):

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
