[R] Installing package QRMlib

Well, because QRMlib interfaces C routines (IIRC), the error message is pretty indicative, i.e. these routines cannot be compiled. Now, without further information there is not much to recommend, but:

1) check your RTools installation
2) Ask the package maintainer (cc'ed) when he will re-release QRMlib on CRAN, be patient until the binaries have been populated and use install.packages()

Betreff: Re: [R] Installing package QRMlib

I wouldn't see myself as an experienced R user soI would appreciate if anyone is able to give me a clear set of instructions on how to install and load QRMlib. The steps I've followed are:

1: Download 'QRMlib_1.4.5.1.tar.gz' from http://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/QRMlib/ to my local folder.

2. QRMlib depends on methods, fCalendar, fEcofin, mvtnorm, chron,its,Hmisc so I install all of these. I install teh following from within RStuidos using the  Packages tab:

a) mvtnorm
b) chron
c) its
d) Hmisc
e) methods

And download the tar.gz files from the archive for:

A) fCalendar
b) fEcofin

In R, I also use the install.packages with type = "source" and repos = NULL to install the packages listed in A) and B)

3. In R, then enter

iinstall.packages(file_name, type ="source", repos = NULL)

where file_name is the directory for QRMlib_1.4.5.1.tar.gz.

It outputs the following error:

Installing package(s) into ‘C:/Program Files/R/R-2.14.1/library’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

Please help!
