logical indicating to also install uninstalled packages on which these
packages depend/suggest/import (and so on recursively). Not used if
repos = NULL. Can also be a character vector, a subset of c("Depends",
"Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", "Enhances").
Using 'dep=TRUE' includes the Suggests, which is where the 200 packages
are coming from. 'install.packages('TSA',dep=c("Depends", "Imports",
"LinkingTo"))' only installs the ones you would think TSA needs.
