Good morning Marc,

Thank you kindly for your quick response.  I had read prior to installation
that I might have needed or wanted to install some different packages to
support R, but did not catch that XQuartz was a requirement.  (I also never
got prompted for various options during the installation of R-4.0.2.pkg.)

Regarding email lists, perhaps you can assist with this question: While I
don't mind becoming a registered member, I prefer not to get email traffic
from groups as I have in the past (I actually really hate email for a lot
of reasons these days), so I'm wondering, is there a way to get a digest (I
thought I saw that) of just a weekly summary of information or questions
posted, rather than getting CC:d on every back-and-forth within the user
community?  Also, do I have to become an approved user to the R mailing
list community or anything like that?  Or are all posts moderated?

Now that the weekend is upon me, I'll have some time to come up to speed on
all this.  Thanks for your patience.

Thanks again!
