    radR is a collection of R and dynamic library files. It is not yet an R "package", but some small pieces of it are.

    Windows (XP/NT):

    • install a version of R for windows (2.3.0 or higher; tested on 2.3.0, 2.3.1, 2.4.0, 2.4.1)
    • 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 radRX.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
      radRX.Y.Z.bat to change the path in the first line: set RHOME=c:\Program Files\R\R-X.Y.Z
    • to use a different version of R than those for which a radRX.Y.Z.bat file is provided, copy
      radR2.3.1.bat to radRX.Y.Z.bat (where X.Y.Z is the version of R you want), and edit the new file
      so that the first line looks like:

      set RHOME=c:\Program Files\R\R-X.Y.Z
    • to hide the console window when starting from the radRX.Y.Z.bat, right click on its icon and drag to the desktop and choose Create a shortcut here.  Right-click on the new shortcut icon and choose Properties.  Then, in the Shortcut panel, change the Run property to minimized.
    • 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
      • edit to ensure that the variables R_VERSION, R_INC, and R_LIBDIR point to the correct
        locations on your system; you might need to change other build variables in Makefile and

      • make
    • run radR by doing (from the radR directory):
      • cd run
      • R
      • source("radR.R")  ## from inside R
    • on unix, radR can't interface with a SeaScan server, but it can read data recorded by one
