[Rd] Re: (PR#7280) Documentation

The message below seems not to have been circulated to R-devel: PR#7279 is from the same person and unreadable in the repository. Presumably both were eliminated by spam filters.

R-bugs is not an appropriate place to ask questions (see the FAQ), but html documentation *is* supported and requires makeinfo 4.5, as the NEWS file says.

This is the expected result from a missing or ancient version of makeinfo, and there will have a message earlier in that case. Please read through all the configuration information for a message like

        "you cannot build info versions of the R manuals"

Solution: install GNU texinfo 4.7 (or 4.6 or 4.5).

Yet another non-bug report ....

Building from source creates the following zero length html files:

-rw-r--r-- 1 cchrist3 cchrist3 0 Oct 11 10:35 R-data.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 cchrist3 cchrist3 0 Oct 11 10:35 R-exts.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 cchrist3 cchrist3 0 Oct 11 10:35 R-FAQ.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 cchrist3 cchrist3 0 Oct 11 10:35 R-intro.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 cchrist3 cchrist3 0 Oct 11 10:35 R-lang.html

Is html documentation no longer supported?
