Simon, colleagues,
I've installed Hadley Wickham's reshape 0.7.1 package in a Windows XP box from http://cran.es.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.4/reshape_0.7.1.zip.

WindowsXP installation version 
platform       i386-pc-mingw32             
arch           i386                        
os             mingw32                     
system         i386, mingw32               
major          2                           
minor          4.0                         
year           2006                        
month          10                          
day            03                          
svn rev        39566                       
language       R                           
version.string R version 2.4.0 (2006-10-03)
Then, I've installed it in a OS X 10.4.8 MacBook from http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/i386/contrib/2.3/reshape_0.7.tgz and http://r.research.att.com/bin/macosx/i386/contrib/2.3/reshape_0.7.tgz

Mac OS X installation version
platform       i386-apple-darwin8.6.1    
arch           i386                      
os             darwin8.6.1               
system         i386, darwin8.6.1         
major          2                         
minor          3.1                       
year           2006                      
month          06                        
day            01                        
svn rev        38247                     
language       R                         
version.string Version 2.3.1 (2006-06-01)

Windows XP release reports reshape 0.7.1, but Mac OS X report 0.7. It seems both versions are a bit different. I've detected at least one diference: Mac OS X reshape cast function has not fill argument available.

Please, is there anything wrong with the Mac OS X release?

Thank you for your help,
