Hi R users and Dr. Uwe Ligges:

I read on the ROracle pre-compiled binary README file that:

"Although the package ROracle passes make check, it seems to be
dangerous to distribute it:
I do not have the software available this package depends on."

Why it is dangerous to use ROracle for windows?
What software does ROracle depends on in windows platform?

Is there a GNU solution for an ODBC driver on windows XP platform
for ORACLE for use it with RODBC?

Thank you for your help.
