Building Xpose from source

it may be desirable to compile Xpose yourself if you need to customize Xpose, or if you wish to work on a port to a different operating system, or another software host such as S-PLUS.

For Windows users, you will need to download some package building toolsets from the web. We direct you to this rather useful tutorial on building R packages under Windows:

This description is a bit outdated but useful as well:

In addition the R help manuals give lots of information:

Your task under Linux/OS X should be much simpler. All the tools you need ought to be available already in almost all distributions. Simply follow the instructions above for istallation from binary files, using source files instead. The *.tar.gz release version of xpose 4 is a compressed source distribution that can be built using the commands above. For more help on building R packages see:


NOTE: This documentation refers to Xpose version 4 for R. For previous versions using S-PLUS, click here. Logo
