Hi there!

I tried to work with Sweave, assuming that it is part of the standard installation - which it was not for my system. Trying to install, it gives me this error message:

> install.packages("Sweave")
Warning message:
In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
  package ‘Sweave’ is not available

My system data are:

Thanks a lot,
