Simon and Denis,
Trying to be a good netizin I too tried the Mac nightly build of
R.app from Simon's page. This is the R-GUI.dmg file that a few days
ago worked beautifully. (Thank you for the nice additions).
However, when launching the program from the finder (not Terminal), I
got the error -10810 reported by Denis.
I am running Mac OSX 10.3.8
I just tried downloading it again, with the same problem.
Simon says that "R is supposed to be run in Terminal or other
shell-like environment" but in fact the daily build of late last week
was double clickable from the Finder, leading me to believe that it
was meant to behave that way.
I am running R 2.0.1 with Mac Gui 1.01. It was the attempt at Mac
Gui 1.0.2 pre experimental build 1393 that is causing the problem.
Thanks for all the good work.
