I noticed that the Rtools/bin directory was not first in path, so I corrected this. However, I'm still not able to create a tar.gz file with the R CMD build command. Then my question would be the following. If I submit my package to CRAN do you know if it needs to be tar.gz or will a tar file be accepted?
A couple of things to try:
- try re-installing Rtools and R
- put Rcmd.bat from http://batchfiles.googlecode.com on your path and
then try re-building
Rcmd.bat build mypackage
Rcmd.bat will automatically find R and certain other files from the
registry and temporarily set certain environment variables that may
compensate for a mis-configured system.
