Not quite. The original versions of some stuff from the library hung around, and my efforts to delete them led to more difficulties.

Specifically, after loading the library I deleted the names of the generics and classes from the library's frame. Then I read the source files into the frame. This time it complained there was no function by the appropriate name when I tried to do setMethod, even though the previous file should have created it. mailing list Received on Wed Feb 01 11:58:25 2006
