To follow up on this ... the StackOverflow forum also handles coding
questions but it specifically advises against posting overly broad
questions or requests for package recommendations or other requests for
external sources of programming advice or tutoring.

Like Rhelp, SO advises questioners is to prepare a test dataset and to show what efforts have been made using R code. The code should preferably install the package and then load it. It should then make whatever preliminary transformations you have attempted along with the compete error messages or descriptions of what results failed to meet your expectations.

Neither Rhelp or SO should be considered as sources for one-off tutorials or as places to ask for one-off projects builds.

And .... Rhelp does not accept HTML code. If you had included code, it 
would probably have been mangles. Use plain text.
