Thank you Paul.
I did find my Developer's CD and installed it. I could not install
Hmisc. I noticed that when installing the developper's cd, many items
were "updates". Maybe this CD only works if you still have the
developer's stuff from OS X 10.1? I downloaded from the link you have
given, and this appears to duplicate what I had on CD. I decided to
install it anyway, and again I noticed that most items were "updates".
After installation was finished, I launched R and tried to install
Hmisc from source on CRAN. I got the same message as before:
Installation of package Hmisc had non-zero exit status in:
install.packages(ui.pkgs, CRAN = getOption(where), contriburl =
So maybe I don't have everything that is required on my HD, because not
much "compiling" was done: the Hmisc folder has only 3 items
(DESCRIPTION, libs (empty folder) and Meta (folder containing only
package.rds). The version compiled on my iMac running Panther has a lot
more, 8 folders plus 3 items (CONTENTS, INDEX and DESCRIPTION).
Unfortunately, that version does not work under Jaguar on my PB.
So I'm stuck, I guess I'll go home to produce my summary statistics on
my iMac :-)
