May I ask another question? I pass the installation. But when I try to
load the package, it keeps saying that Rbdg does not exist which is
weird to me.

Just wondering you ran into the same issue? My R version is 2.15.1. Thank you.

> library(Rbdg)
Error in library(Rbdg) : there is no package called ‘Rbdg’
