Andrea --

I installed this package from Harrell's web site at Vanderbilt.  Here are
my notes on how I did that:


Installed Harrells Hmisc and Design packages (from source from his web
page at Vanderbilt)

   1. Before installing, had to fake a library directory to avoid
      "warnings" (which would probably not matter anyway), but here it

      Did this in /usr/local/lib/gcc:

      Script started on Fri Mar 11 08:54:29 2005

      local% sudo mkdir powerpc-apple-darwin6.8
      local% cd powerpc-apple-darwin6.8
      local% sudo ln -s ../powerpc-apple-darwin6.6/3.4 3.4.2

      Script done on Fri Mar 11 08:56:18 2005

   2. Installed package by moving the *.tar.gz file to /tmp and then

      local% R CMD INSTALL /tmp/Hmisc_xxx.tar.gz


I think that I did get a few warnings during the compilation of Hmisc and
installation, but they have never seemed to make a difference and Hmisc
and Design are running fine.  By the way:

> version
platform powerpc-apple-darwin6.8
arch     powerpc
os       darwin6.8
system   powerpc, darwin6.8
major    2
minor    0.1
year     2004
month    11
day      15
language R
