    radR is a collection of R and dynamic library files. It is not yet an R "package".

    Windows (XP/NT):

    • install a version of R for windows (2.3.1 or higher)
    • download the most recent here.
    • install by unzipping it to a folder.
      WinZip Warning:  verify that your unzip program has correctly created radR subfolders.  These
      should include at least: extmat, palettes, plugins, strictenv.  At least one version of
      WinZip has been found to incorrectly flatten this substructure and corrupt files.  The symptom
      is radR not starting at all, or starting with an error message about "strictenv" and then
      exiting.  Unzip programs known to work are the "Compressed Files" handler built into Windows XP,
      and the excellent free Info-Zip program.

    • run radR: double-click on the radR_X_Y_Z.bat file in that folder, where X.Y.Z is the
      version of R you wish to use.  Alternatively:
      • run the graphic version of R, Rgui.exe
      • from the menu: File | Change dir... and change the directory to the radR folder
      • from the menu: File | Source R code... and select radR.R
      • you might need to minimize the Rgui window to see the radR windows
    • if R is not installed in the usual location (C:\Program Files\R\R-X.Y.Z\bin) then edit
      radR_X_Y_Z.bat to change the path in the first line: set PATH=%PATH%;c:\Program Files\R\R-X.Y.Z\bin
    • you can set up radR to interface with a SeaScan server


    • install a version of R for unix (2.3.1 or higher)
    • you also need GNU tar, bash, make and gcc
    • download the most recent radRXXXsource.tgz here.
    • unpack and build radR by doing:
      • tar -xzvf radRXXXsource.tgz
      • cd radR
      • make
    • run radR by doing (from the radR directory):
      • R --no-readline --no-save
      • source("radR.R")  ## from inside R
    • on unix, radR can't interface with a SeaScan server, but it can read data recorded by one
