Subject: [R] Installling source package

Hi R users,

Im trying to install XML source package (in window platform) using the following command.

*install.packages(pkgs = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\skang\\Desktop\\Softwares\\R\\Library\\XML_2.6-0.tar.gz", repos = NULL, type = "source")*

and get the following result.
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
/cygdrive/c/Rtools/bin/tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
/cygdrive/c/Rtools/bin/tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
/cygdrive/c/Rtools/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
ERROR: error unpacking tarball
Warning message:
In install.packages(pkgs = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\skang\\Desktop\\SK\\Softwares\\R\\Library\\XML_2.6-0.tar.gz",  :
  installation of package 'C:/DOCUME~1/skang/Desktop/SOFTWA~1/R/Library/XML_2.6-0.tar.gz' had non-zero exit status I have installed Rtools from http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/ and have added 'Rtools\bin' to the environment variables path.

Am I missing something?
