Hi,

Thanks for that - I attempted to install the earlier versions I had been successful with before - Rggobi 1.0.0 and ggobi 1.0.0-beta. The R side of things wouldn't compile out of the box due to a change in the R_IsNaNorNA function. This caused a problem in RSGgobi.c, which I fixed by adding the following patch:

static int G_IsNaNorNA(double f)
{

   return (R_IsNaN(f) || R_IsNA(f));
}

and changed

    GGobi_setMissingValueIdentifier(R_IsNaNorNA); to

    GGobi_setMissingValueIdentifier(G_IsNaNorNA);

I can at least load the package and start ggobi now.

Thanks
