Dear Greg,

As I explained to you in a private email, and as others have told you, 
there is no Install.libraries() command, nor is there an 
install.libraries(0 command, but there is an install.packages() command.

So install.packages("hms") should work, on a Mac or on any other 
internet-connected computer on which R runs -- as you've also been told 
by others, this is not a Mac-specific issue. Note that the argument to 
install.packages must be quoted. See ?install.packages for details.

I'll also repeat the advice that I gave you privately to learn something 
about R before you try to use it, possibly starting with the "An 
Introduction to R" manual that ships with the standard R distribution.
